Lego mindstorms masterpieces
While many LEGO books exist that show step-by-step instructions, they lack substantially detailed explanations about the building techniques used by the builders and the general concepts that are fundamental to the projects. These reflections are the foundation of LEGO MINDSTORMS Masterpieces. The goal of this book is to present very sophisticated prop ects with the maximum level of detail. In the book you hold in your hands you will find not only high quality step-by-step instructions for building all of the robots, but also a complete description for each of them, including goals, building techniques, programming techniques, and the theory supporting the designer's choices.
- Stair-Climber by Doug Carlson is based on the innovative tri-star wheel concept and can drive, step, and climb over obstacles!
- Learning Brick Sorter by Mario Ferrari uses the theory of adaptability, as it has the ability not only to sort bricks by color, but also the ability to learn how.
- The LEGO Turing Machine by Giulio Ferrari is a revolutionary device created to study computability, and which allows us to journey to the time of Artificial Intelligence.
- PneumADDic II by Kevin Clague describes a collection of building and pneumatic techniques that should be fundamental tools for any serious Mindstormer.
- Synchropillar by Kevin Clague, demonstrates that by using pneumatics you can achieve simple automation characteristics.
- Shape-Shifting Camera Tank (SSCT) by Miguel Agullo is based on a real-life search-and-explore robot, the Variable Geometry Tracked Vehicle (VGTV). When built, the SSCT allows us a peek into a very practical application of real life robotics: telepresence.
- CyberArm IV by Hideaki Yabuki, featuring many famous pneumatics components, is controlled by a sensor feedback system.

L'auteur - Miguel Agullo
Miguel Agullo was born in Spain but has lived abroad for long periods of time, from the Far East to South America, from central Europe to the U.S. His wide range of interests is responsible for his work in such diverse industries as finance, media, aeronautics, and antique trading. Trained as a journalist and impressed with the candor and resourcefulness of the online LEGO community, Miguel tries to give something back by regularly updating his Web site with instructions for new models, new Ldraw pieces, and anything he thinks is worth sharing with other LEGO aficionados. His building interests revolve around robotics, and specifically biomechanics: creating mechanisms that mimic the behavior of natural devices such as legs or arms. His creations include biped walkers, robots that jump, and a fully functional (including a brake!) LEGO motorcycle.
