cool


nice good idea in a few days i will post another project


Wow!


Nice idea, but how does it help seniors in their everyday life? I know it promotes awareness in FLL competitions, but how does it aide seniors?


Nice project! Too bad it's only big enough to fit an action figure! :) If you could build the same thing at a bigger scale (with probably more motors & another NXT) than it could actually be used as a wheel chair! :D


It really wasn't built for the Senior Solutions challenge on here. I just wanted to get it saved as a project on here and the video on Youtube before we took it apart for summer classes.

With Senior Solutions as this years FLL challenge our team wanted to make their competition robot look like a wheelchair. However, they also wanted to score very high in the robot game. In the end it was too much to have a high performing robot that maintained its wheelchair look. They ended up building another competition robot, but we continued to work on the Wheelchair robot. It ended up becoming a demonstration tool for telling seniors about LEGO robots and FLL competition.
