    Lego Robot Making a Car

    Hi,
    I was just going around YouTube and found this cool vid of a "Lego factory" that makes cars! It looks like it uses at least 5 RCXes! A must see vid!!!

    This has got to be one of the most amazing things I've ever seen done with Legos! Do you know what line of Legos this was accomplished with?

    I remember when I was a kid I thought it was cool spending a week building a Medieval castle, and pimping it off to my friends. Or, going to the mall to make myself envious of the Lego competitions with projects larger than life.

    WOW, Lego's have come a long way

    I think it was done with Lego Mindstorms 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0. Does this answer you question?

    Thanks

    I watched the video a few more times, and did a recount of RCXes and the number of RCXes came out as 10! So if thay bought them for $30 each (a normal price on ebay) that would be $300 for 10!!! But if thay bought them new for $75 each that would be $750!!!!! Now thats alot of money!!!
