recently, I came across a Kickstarter project that I think a lot of us will be interested in. Since it's over halfway through its 90 day funding window and still need a lot of pledging to become successful, I thought I'd post it here:
The MinuteBot Base is a thick, robust base plate that can be used for construction of robotics based on LEGO Mindstorms. It extends a LEGO beam into a rectangular plate with 21 x 30 holes. The dimensions and holes are a perfect fit with LEGO products:
So yeah, basically, it's a base plate, like the ones we've all used in "regular" LEGOs, except this one will be specially made for Technic/ Mindstorms
The way that Kickstarter works, a project only receives the money people want to invest in it if the project reaches a preset amount of money by the end of a ninety day cycle, so, if you people are as excited about this as I am, it would be great if we all pledged some money - pledge enough, and the makers will give you a MinuteBot Base for free (kinda).
So here's the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/378 ... e?ref=live
PS: They didn't ask me to do this, and I do not mean to spam, but I just thought this would be a great addition to the LEGO Mindstorms and Technic world, and it would help a lot of our projects become even better.
