This space of my website is reserved for some of my LEGO Mindstorms creations. I provide pictures and a short description for each robot. I will be happy to answer more specific questions by e-mail, but please understand that I will not provide any concrete building instructions (because I don't have them, either).
All robots include pictures and descriptions. Look at the icons next to each robot's name. They provide additional information on the robot's main parts and the included files (such as source codes or videos). The descriptions for the icons can be found at the end of the list.
