See MGBC live from LEGOWORLD

This year, Eric, Gerrit, Martyn and friends prepared an MGBC setup for LEGOWORLD.
And, what is MGBC, you asks. MGBC is an expansion (in the fully sense of the term...) from GBC concept and stands for "Much Greater Ball Contraption" or "MINDSTORMS Greater Ball Contraption".

It uses MINDSTORMS balls at a much slower transport rate than standard GBC. About 2 balls per minute.
See below one photo from the actual setup running at LEGOWORLD.

Do you want to see more!?
Ok, take a look to this post, today from 13:00 PM to 15:PM (GMT) to see LegoWorld MGBC in action, at TechnicBRICKs live video channel. Then it will be repeated Monday and Tuesday at the same hours (occasionally you may find it streaming at different periods, but most likely I won't be here following the chat.).

Live video on top and live chat room at bottom. Tell us what do you think.

As alternative, you may follow it directly on this URL.

Sorry guys...
Severe wireless network unavailability today (Monday), prevented us to broadcast the video signal at intended hours.

Lets, see tomorrow...
