Other Website

I am working on another website, marten.tk, about a wider range of my interests. It focuses on lego, photography, writing, and I am working on adding an NXT section. Please take a look, I'm creating it from scratch and if you have any suggestions I would appreciate hearing them.

New GBC module

Although I wasn't the first to come up with the idea of a module like this, I believe I was the first to come up with the idea of inverting the treads and using them to make the wheel. Let me know if someone else had the idea first.

Trebuchet


This isn't exactly MINDSTORMS, but it's technic, which generally qualifies for posting.
This trebuchet can fling a 1x2 brick 5 meters, or 8m if you count the bounces.
The weight box has a weight brick, AA batteries, and lead fishing weights that I found at a garage sale.
