Quick update: Was in the aforementioned AZ Walmart on Wednesday, and decided to "splurge" and buy 6 more crayon boxes. Was pleasantly…

Well I went ahead and purchased one of these, the box arrived but now I am having issues even getting the unit to run. Can anyone provide…

Walmart is selling plastic "crayon boxes" for $1 a pop (at least in the stores I've checked in AZ and CT). They are a great size for small…

Yeah, not as exciting. But I included some pictures of the boards highlighted? Ha ha.

Ah drivers... Not nearly as exciting as your normal dance costume posts, but probably significantly more important... if only we could get…

This sounds like the Klutz "Lego Crazy Action Contraptions" book+kit, which has been updated slightly over the years, but still…

Just a heads up, the video mentions dual 3A ports on the battery pack. However, only one of the ports outputs 3A.

I like where you are headed with that... you could also add an eccentric rotating mass (ERM) (aka vibrating) motor to get it to wobble.

Here is the GitHub repository for this project (also linked above). I believe the files are in the…

I know there are specific restrictions on international orders (however, the rules get changed every few months). As a rule of thumb, if…
