Let's Make Robots!

MachineGunBot

Right now, just a basis for a military robot.

Hello. This is my first robot on LMR :). It uses Lego Mindstorms NXT, and what it does, it moves around and shoots using the highly noticeable machine gun mounted on top of the robot (machine gun design adapted from: http://www.nxtprograms.com/machine_gun/index.html). A youtube video above shows how it shoots, and moves (need to work on drive motors). In the video, I used Briccx Command Center to control the robot, so don't think the robot actually executed some program... Well...I guess that's it. I'll be planning a lot for this robot, adding an Ultrasonic Sensor and other devices.

Part of the firing mechanism of the machine gun of the robot. It even makes a machine gun sound!

All those little beams are used as bullets. Notice how the black long stick running through the ammunition is used in the video to load the mag.
