Week TechVideo, 2008 #48 - Window-blind driver

This week, decided to highlight a video from Tomasz Zajac, who won the 2nd prize, at Klocki "Home Improvement" contest with his window-blind driver.

A remote controlled window-blind driver, for those too lazy, who have difficulties getting up in the morning.
See below some photos of this project, taken from Tomasz's BS folder.

Getting ideas!?...

Very nice! I have one of those roller blinds in my room, so I may do that in the future.
The only problem I can see is that of the batteries. You'd have to leave it on all night! I guess if you slept right next to the machine then you could switch it on, but then what would be the point in the machine or the remote control. Perhaps having a Mindstorms instead with the rechargeable battery pack plugged in all night, and then a second NXT or your phone to control it.
Perhaps Lego might release a revised battery box with rechargeable battery packs and a charger

But.. it is known that we will get a PF chargeable battery in 2009, for the new PF Trains.

So, why not to use it also, at other models, when required!?
