I AM SO GOING TO JOIN!!!!!!!!


I just saw the centipede. hehe i just made one!


cool!I will try to enter somthing


Great new challenge! Thanks Community!


When do we find out about the Winter Sports Challenge?


Wow, this is a great challenge! It is a surprise and pleasure to see my robots on the "inspiration" step.


awesome lets see what we can make. Going to join and i am glad to see they are really are going to have a challenge every month


I have got an idea for the NeXT competition, a Star Wars competition! Why? Make the deadline date may the 4th, May the 4th be with you!


I am so excited about this!


Awesome, I just built a humanoid!!!


AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!But can you upload the full picture?


Wow! I'm really happy to see my Hexapod on the cover picture :D And of course I will join with a new robot!


I've a problem. I want to enter with my SENTIN2L. I posted it some months ago. But when I try to change the robot profile, my computer crashes, the robot is off-line, and I can't re-publish it. I did that with my EBB Omega. Because I don't want that all my robot-profiles are glitched, I don't try to change the SENTIN2L profile. So my question is: can I enter via another way than a tag?


Why just one month to build?


I am in


I entered my centip3d3, I am going to make WALK3R MK V


I agree with lama-mantis, that there must be some sort of help given to him.


Q: When do we find out about the Winter Sports Challenge? A: We are judging the contest now - winners will be announced soon!


Dear lama-mantis, RE: submitting SENTIN2L - I suggest trying to tag it from a different computer - or use a different web browser. It is more efficient for Judging if all entries are tagged. SENTIN2L is an awesome robot!


I'll try to add the tag. I hope it works! I think that the EBB Omega problem was that I posted it in NXTlog (the old Community).


I'm sure it works now.... In moderation!


Could we have some more time for this because I want to begin mine but I am busy making my 4x4


Does the robot file have to have a video? My computer filed videos normally don't work in a robot file. Can we put lots of photos that show the action of the walker? Otherwise definitely joining.


I already entered two robots


I heard something about "the news doesn't work, so we can't post a news item with the winners". When will that be fixed?


Is it an idea that the winners of challenges are 'favorite robots' on the EV3Community profile?


Q: egomaster7979 Does the robot file have to have a video? My computer filed videos normally don't work in a robot file. Can we put lots of photos that show the action of the walker? A: You do not have to post a video - your picture idea sounds amazing!


Q: lama-mantis I heard something about "the news doesn't work, so we can't post a news item with the winners". When will that be fixed? A: The news isn't broken - the Winter Sports Winners will be posted soon!


I see you've put the walking bot competition on the news but can you put the winners of the other 2 competitions on?


More photos please :-)


when do i start


In the WinterSportsChallenge, I saw this: "There has been an unavoidable delay in posting the winners of the Dance Bot competition on the MINDSTORMS News page - but we posted a list of the winners and honorable mentions in the comments on the Dance Bot Page. Great work and we can't wait to see your Winter Sports bots!" So I thought the news system was broken.


cool


I will try and join to!! When is this ending???


How do you sign up


I can't find a way to attach the program by itself, so may I attach the whole .ev3 project file instead? Thank you!


I have made a MICRO MANAG3R, I am hoping that I will post it sooner or later. I might try and really push myselft to make a Hexapod or maybe a octopod


I've also entered sine of my past 'bots'.


Since the log is (still...) glitchy, and I can't edit my robots to change the tags, can you enter Cassidy, the NXT Otter? Thanks. :)


who won?


um...MODS WHO WON?


to bad it is over


I don't know who won


this is asome

March your way and seize the day this month with a WALKING BOT! This March, we are challenging the LEGO MINDSTORMS Community to invent robots that can move with any number of “legs” (some creatures walk on their hands too). Make a new humanoid, machine, or animal that can walk in a new and creative way. You can design a biped (2 legs), triped (3 legs), quadruped (4 legs), pentapod (5 legs), hexapod (6 legs), octopod (8 legs), or even a centipede! You can build a LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3, NXT, or even an RCX walking robot. Run to your MINDSTORMS set and get building! All entries must be tagged “walkingbot” Deadline: April 1, 2014. What will you make?
