I’m all for using 3rd party electronics in LEGO – especially using this sort of thing to revive discontinued systems like Monorail, and I’m really excited about this project for a couple reasons:
They’re partnering with Brickstuff to make easy connections to those very excellent lights.
They’re taking a great approach to remote control with their IR system – having to pair a “smart brick” with a phone or tablet is really a pain at a big public show – especially when you walk awak and your train stops…
Head on over to their Kickstarter page and take a look. They’re about 135 “deluxe” packages away from being funded, with 16 days left.
For our March 2017 meeting, we decided to make the building challenge construction-themed. The rules were that the MOC had to fall into the construction theme (aka made of LEGO) and fit into a 1x1x1ft container.
