What you see in the video after the jump would be the GBC (Great Ball Contraption), and in that particular setup, it boasts of a robotic arm that is constructed from LEGO and driven by an NXT – to get the whole idea on how it works, you will need to watch the video – just goes to show yet again that pictures speak louder than words, so in the case of a video, you can imagine the volume of speech that accompanies it.
It seems that mechanically, the person behind this LEGO robotic arm is a genius, although some might say it is stretching the truth by quite a bit. Well, you can certainly take your hats off to the programming work involved! Would be nice to see other more functional robot arms being made out of LEGO, what about you?
