Have been playing with SBrick these days...

Yes, as the title suggests I've playing a bit with a couple of SBrick prototypes (v3 and v4.1) these days, while the definitive are on their way to my mailbox.

Since a couple of profiles were prepared for some of my favorite LEGO Technic official models which run with the iOS app, I started doing some footage last weekend and here it follows the results...


I started with 8043S in front of a real Excavator and Wheel Loader in a seaside rock jetty repair scenario.
It was a sunny day in December, so it was nearly impossible to see what's going on in the iPhone app and I didn't have the laptop with me to capture it.



Then I've done something similar with 8043S at home. This time I've capture the iPhone screen while controlling my favorite Excavator, and added it to the video.



Followed by some time to play with something else, so I picked my 8275S to play a bit!



And finally I recorded also a video, while controlling the SBrick ports with a control app for Android, from Nordic Semiconductor.



Now I'll rest waiting for the final SBricks to arrive, and continue preparing my reviews for the 1H2015 LEGO Technic sets!

Designers videos on 1H15 LEGO Technic sets

Don't ask me how but sometimes LEGO official produced videos pops first somewhere else than LEGO website or even their own YouTube Channel...

So it was again the case for the LEGO Technic Designers videos presenting the new 1H 2015 set, which appeared in the YT channel of a Dutch store.

And here they are in order of the set reference.

42031 - Cherry Picker



42032 - Compact Track Loader



42033 + 42034 - Record Breaker + Quad Bike



42035 - Mining Truck



42036 - Street Motorcycle



42037 - Formula Off-Roader



42038 - Arctic Truck



42039 - 24 Hours Race Car



It is missing the 42041 Race Truck, but nothing new as it is a re-edition from a 2010 set.

On my side, I'm still working on the new sets reviews and videos...



Bye!
