LEGO Mindstorm Ogre

LEGO Mindstorm Ogre autonomously detects, targets, and destroys... Check out the very cool video below.

Ogre is a "Tank" built around a Zamor launching system nicknamed "Hailstorm". It uses three XL PF motors, controlled ejavascript:void(0)ither by a standard PF remote, or by the on-board (black) NXT using the Hitechnic IRLink. It also has a small wireless "spycam" attached, so that the driver can "see" what the robot sees. The result is a lot of fun to drive around, and even more fun to watch it autonomously detect, target, and destroy loose LEGO targets.

The robot part was abit scary. On the verge of being a true Terminator!
