Week TechVideo, 2012 #16 - Tic Tac Toe

Because of posting policy of one single video per week, many interesting models don't fit the specific time that I find them, laying then in my 'to post' folder almost forever in many cases...

But because this section doesn't live only of new creations, I decided to bring up today one model with some time, that some should have seen already highlighted in other famous LEGO blogs months ago.
A LEGO Tic Tac Toe play robot, using one single RCX, made by Arthur Sacek back in 2004 and later relived in a YouTube video by its author, at the middle of past year. 

The utilization of the RCX with a compressor and other pneumatic elements, makes it even more interesting.

You can find additional photos from this robot, at Arthur's website.

Fantastic! I always thought that the old LEGO Mindstorms allowed for way more compact robots than the inexplicably bulky NXT parts... For some reason, the old RCX feels "more technic" to me.

I like this model too and it encourages me to do something with the RCX again.

@ santi RCX or NXT; for me it's Lego! :-)

Though I agree the RCX and it's smaller sensors have some advantages over the NXT.
A huge one is the possibility to stack the sensors.
The RCX (and Scout) is also a good combination with the PF medium motors...
