This week, some MINDSTORMS creation for a change.
It is a cute walker (jumper) with 3 legs, designed and programmed by Daniele Benedettelli.
The Tripod was built by Daniele after he got inspiration on the alien invaders from the War of the Worlds movie. Its unique way of walking allows this monster to walk straight in three directions, and can turn within its footprints. This robot can be built with the NXT 2.0 retail set 8547, and it was initially meant to become a bonus model of this set.
Free detailed building instructions and NXC program, can be downloaded from Daniele's website.
Please avoid sending requests to post specific models on this TBs section.
We understand some of you would enjoy to see your creations featured here, but please understand that because only one video gets highlighted per week, it is impossible to accommodate all the great MOCs continuously build by the Technic builders out there. They simply won't fit all and that's also not the purpose of this blog (see the header statement).
Many of your MOCs are scanned anyway and listed for later publication when they do not fit immediately. However some remain in the backlog queue just for too long and eventually loose the relevance or the publication opportunity window. As a rule of thumb, we also avoid publishing MOCs that have been featured by their authors or other fans at some other great web places dedicated to the Technic community out there. It doesn't mean that occasionally some won't get published here anyway.
Thanks for your understanding!
