The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Flyer-Delivering Lego Robot

Flyer-Delivering Lego Robot


High school student Leon Overweel built this sick flyer robot to hand out leaflets Rye High School science fair. It uses an ultrasonic sensor to detect a visitor, then pulls a flyer off of a pile and hands it to the visitor. My favorite details are the Fergelli linear actuators and the Mindsensors Flexi Cables. He even hacked together a NXT-Power Functions adapter cable! Also be sure to check out Leon’s Lego printer.

    Thanks for the shoutout! One thing though, it’s “Overweel,” without the H :) Thanks again!

    Next step: give it wheels and a program to detect people, and let it loose handing out leaflets in the city.
