Post LEGO quad-brick FlexPicker
Hi, all!

This wasn't programmed in RobotC, which is why I'm putting it in general discussions.

The pictures are too big to post here, and I've already written about it elsewhere: http://buildsmartrobots.ning.com/profil ... xpicker-v1

You can find pictures, as well as the NXT-G programs at my BrickShelf folder here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=469861

I built it about a year and a half ago, when I was 11 and 12. That is to say, I started building it when I was 11, and had a birthday in that time and finished it when I was 12.

Here's the video:



Sorry, I would say more, but I gotta go!

Hah, maybe they were all jealous :) Reprogram it in ROBOTC and can be featured on the cool projects page on the ROBOTC site!

Not a chance. Okay, maybe I could translate the NXT-G to RobotC, but I wouldn't be able to test it. This was torn apart over a year ago. When I build another FlexPicker, it will be much better than this. And in RobotC.

I might start another one around - I don't know - November? December? I've got a set of contests coming up soon, and those robots aren't gonna build themselves. Yet 8)

This is not a programming related question but how many compressors are in the machine?

I once translated from NXT-g to ROBOTC, and it was fun, but it was like translating Greek to Latin!

Thank ye

About IIRC
And now we're off-topicy :)



That is an interesting claw design. How long did it take to come up with it?

The entire design phase :lol:
I just kept changing it as I needed to. Never really finished until it worked for the end product.
