LPFIB-V2 – 020 – 41

Build by dad in a common LEGO session with me.

iPhone Tripod, the third

Because the first two constructions are not very stable, dad build this one (source LEGO Mindstorms Projects). It is very stable, but not high.

Generator

Dad wants to show me what an electric generator is. The Power Functions e-motor can work as a generator as well. It is driven by another motor, connected…

Another Tripod

The first tripod has two disadvantages: The tilting is not done with gears but works through friction, which is dificult to handle for dad. The iPhone is not…

Dad started to help me. To build all the models it requires a lot of time. For dad it is finger training.

First Tripod

We need a tripod for the time lapse video. Dad found this one with instructions.

Two Team Representatives

Now the proof of concept is complete.

Assistant with Water Bottle

The cross stick is too large for this scale, but it underlines the important part.

LPFIB-V1 – 192 – 10

Dad didn’t want to wait. So he built the model by himself.  Only the visible black pin is from me.

GBC – Ball Pump

Our first GBC module. Dad found the instructions in Internet. When dad was building, I wanted to help. I insisted, so dad finally gave me a new Star…

LPFIB-V1 – 159 – 17

Dad build the model some time ago. Because it seems the only model with servo motor, we didn’t dismounted it. Now we will show it in school.
