Jeff Lalo writes "This Guy has built a Lego version of Dean Kamens Segway Human Transporter. This thing was constructed using only Legos, two cheap (~$40) custom sensors and some smart programing using the open source BrickOS for the Lego RCX. The LegWay, as the creator calls it, can balance itself on two wheels and follow a line. Pretty cool for few lego blocks!"
I feel dirty, but I have to admit it’s kinda interesting…
you Dirty Dirty Man how could you … go take a shower or somthing
You might need some steel wool to get that dirt off.
I’m suprised no one said sand blaster!! Get one of thoes. I think they work really well…
This isnt hard to do, I am a counslor @ FIRST PLACE during the summer and they have two “Lego League” weeks. We built a similar thing yet the kids being age 10-13 couldent really hold their own attentions to work on it.
The lego Beretta and Koch MP5-10 look so much cooler.
So Kamen spent millions of dollars developing the Segway, and then some guy goes out and builds the same thing with LEGOs and cheap sensors. Wow.
