Yesterday afternoon arrived at LEGOWORLD 2008 in Zwolle (The Netherlands). It is a first time visit and it was amazing to see so many many LEGO and fans in the same place.
It was also fantastic to meet some with whom I've established contact through TBs in person for the first time.
First I took a general overview of the exhibition, to see what was shown for each building theme and to meet some persons. Later I made a 2nd round to see more in detail those TECHNIC points of interest, which caught my eye at first.
Eric, Gerrit, Martyn (robotica) and friends prepared a surprise, which was an MGBC setup (stands for 'Much Greater Baller Contraption', 'Much large GBC' or 'MINDSTORMS GBC'). Instead of the usual GBC setups with the small football balls, the goal is to move large MINDSTORMS balls (52mm) around and instead of an average of 1 ball/sec cadence, it features about 2 balls/min.
See in the photo and video below.
The MGBC video, was added to this post.
