Lego Go-Kart

Lego Go-Kart

Simon Burfield, who built a Lego wheelchair, created this sweet go-cart, also built completely out of Lego.

Demo of my wife driving the Lego go-kart. It is powered by 16 XL PF motors, 8 rechargeable power functions battery packs. The steering is controlled via an NXT. It uses 20 EXO-FORCE Lego Wheels. I built this over Christmas as a way to put my yellow studded Lego to use.

Incidentally, the Lego wheelchair was a hit at the Lego World convention, and Lego CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp and the company’s owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen both have tried it out. Nice going Burf!

My interests include writing, electronics, RPGs, scifi, hackers & hackerspaces, 3D printing, building sets & toys. @johnbaichtal
