Hej everybody, this year, 2020, there will not be a lot of new stuff from me. I am on sabbatical in Costa Rica, so far away from my Lego. If you're curious about the sabbatical, then check out https://theflipfloplife.com

    I really appreciate your attempts to come up with new steering concepts! I can't wait for the next one!

    Thank you very much, mic8per!
    I am afraid a Mindstorms version will not be easy because the mechanism can not take a lot of weight. Perhaps you found v1 of this MOC as well? It is a lot heavier than this v2 and seems to be close to the maximum weight that it can carry. But is is still much lighter than a mindstorms brick.

    Thanks for your comment and praise! It is good and interesting to know that a 5.5 year old can build it. I designed it for a 8 year old. Perhaps a more complex design had been better, but I since the Hook Loader model was a given, there was no space left for a more difficult built. By the way, I like the camera that you have as profile picture!

    Thanks for your elaborate reply, Kueden! I think I have the most recent version, but maybe it is because I am running on a mac. For now it is not so urgent because I am halfway across the globe from my Lego for a year because of a sabbatical.
    For sure, I am not irritated by loose hanging wheels. I think having the software controlling them is good design. After all, why have a computer and then insisting on exclusively mechanical solutions? What you do is very creative in combining the possibilities of the hardware and the software!

    Very nice and original work, Kueden! Interesting experiments! How did you get to the idea to experiment with this concept of relative-rotation-steering?
    PS I checked the lxf file. It seems that the steering mechanism is missing, i.e. the parts that hold the wheels in their respective places. I had an error message when opening the file on my mac. Maybe that explains it, maybe they are separate issues.
