Colossal Mindstorms EV3 Dragon Acts Alive


I love this fantastic dragon built from next-generation Mindstorms EV3 parts, created by the Lego Mindstorms Education EV3 team, including product designer Lee Magpili. You can see more of his work at Lego Education as well as his Flickr set. The dragon, Valentine, was built from 6 EV3 microcontroller bricks, 18 motors, and took 30 days to build. The dragon’s motors make it seem to breathe, it’s tail, eyes and mouth move, and each leg is 4DOF. Amazing. [via Joe Meno]
