Project: T-rex

THE AMAZING T REX :D IT’S MADE FROM AN EV3 LEGO BRICK AND GEARS.  IT CAN ROAR.  IT CAN WALK.  IT’S AMAZING :) AND EVEN MORE AMAZING:  IT HAS TOES, SHARP TEETH, AND IT CAN BITE HARD LIKE A JACKHAMMER :D

YOU CAN FIND THE BASIC INSTRUCTIONS TO BUILD THE T-REX IN THE LEGO MINDSTORM EV3 LABORATORY BOOK

You tube video showing a t-rex in action

AFTER BUILDING THE T-REX FROM THE INSTRUCTIONS, I WASN’T HAPPY WITH THE WAY IT MOVED SO I PUT A 6 HOLED LINE WITH A LINE STICKING OUT OF IT AT 45 DEGRES WITH 4 HOLES THEN AT THE END I PUT A SMALL RUBER WEEL ON A BLUE TUBED PEICE AND PUT IT ON END OF IT THEN I ATACHED IT TO THE BACK OF THE FOOT THEN IT WILL MAKE MORE FRICTION SO IT CAN MOVE. IT SLIDES WITHOUT IT.  IT WAS WORKING WELL.  PICTURES OF THE MODIFICATION COMING SOON.

I PROGRAMED IT TO OPEN ITS MOUTH AND ROAR. IT’S FUN.

THE T REX PROGRAM :D

IT CAN ALSO WALK.  I CAN MODIFY IT IF I WANT, BUT I LIKE IT THE WAY IT IS SO, THAT’S ALL IT DOES FOR NOW. I’M GOING TO ADD MORE STUFF LATER.

4 WEEKS AFTER FINISHING I NOTICED THAT THE LEGS WERE BACKWARDS…  I PLAN TO PUT THEM ON AS SHOWN IN THE INSTRUCTIONS TO SEE IF IT WALKS BETTER.
