I am proud to present to you my interpretation of Disney's latest Pixar animation movie star and i name Wall-E!
He is entirely made of Lego parts and Lego NXT Mindstorms Robotic System for brains, he is fully automated and animated and programed using Labview's NXT-G software. I have built many prototype before coming to this final revision (wall-e rev.3)
1 Mindstorms NXT with rechargable pack,
3 Lego NXT Servo Motors,
4 Lego PowerFonctions motors,
2 PF IR receiver,
1 UltraSonic sensor,
1 Sound sensor,
1 InfraRed link sensor, (HiTechnic)
1 NXTservo module and
1 mini RC servo, (Mindsensors)
10 AA batteries
Lego parts mainly from the Bulldozer set #8275 and other parts from various technic sets.

This video is a bit long but shows how i got rid of an 'illigal' modified lego part to make my Wall-E 'pure'
I also have a Picasaweb photo album thats show every parts of Wall-E in as i disassemble him assist other in recreating him ( i was unable to embed the slideshow so i attached a few here of the hundreds available)
I hope my robot will be considered in the upcoming contest and dazzle you
in the meantime please enjoy and contact me if you have any questions.
