Especially for builders I made an overview of the different parts from Nxtwallet. For building purposes I will release for each part a separate video with views from different angles. I am aware that building with this videos still remains a challenge. But I will answer questions posted to me at

Completed - explainary video out before Christmas

posted Dec 12, 2010, 12:21 AM by nxt wallet

I completed Nxtwallet today. I encountered problems when Nxtwallet transformed by himself (instead of me by remote controlling). I first worked with time controlled automation, but when the battery power lowered the time increased for each step in transforming.  So Nxtwallet got stuck when he went to sleep after a busy day.  I solved it by using three RCX touch sensors placed in serial. One for each transforming movement.  It was quite a challenge to get it in, because space inside is very limited. Now it Works fine and Nxtwallet goes to sleep when he likes it and so do I…
I will try to get a explainary video out before Christmas in which I will release as much building information as possible.

nxtwallet meets zWall-E4

At LEGO World in Zwolle (Netherlands) two important creations met. Both showed their capabilities to the audience. All went well. Nxtwallet which uses sound detection while transforming started beeping, because he found to much noice. Although beeping he transformed very nicely in and out. Both builders met and exchanged ideas. Bazmarc first creation inspired Andreas to build nxtwallet. Both believed there should be a next look alike with features of  the two versions presented at Zwolle.

i have been working on the next version of nxtwallet. The lifting gear is stronger. NXTSumoEyes from Mindsensors have been added to the back. The body has a lighter construction. I hope to show it soon.

In this video you can see the raw video of the transformation. When you see this video, listen to the sound of the motors. When you hear no motor sound no commands were issued.
My kid is playing with LEGO (of course) and produces also sounds. The video from my Sony HD camera is cut with Pinnacle Studio  and saved as MPEG4 with medium quality
