NXTLOG? This is MINDSTORMS Community, as if it isn't obvious. But that is a cool robot you've got there.


I like your slothbot. I want to build that some day. I'm six years old and I think it is cool.


Looks good! Could use more support on the wheels though, they seem to be bending a little.


nice job i always liked robots that followed a line


Thanks Everyone! Keep Checking my page please! as soon as I am done with boring old homework, I'm posting SLOTHBOt V2!


cool bot! try it with EV3


Sadly I don't have ev3


Is this in my challenge? If so, just add the tag "RAC". Worth a try...


wats your challange? Should I enter it? I will!


My challenge is RoboAnimal Challenge. Worth a try! I need more people to enter it; so far, only two creations have been submitted (I'm awarding five people).

Hey Everyone! This is my first NXTLOG robo in a while, my brand new Slothbot. This robot is just like a sloth. It moves along a rope, string, or wire, as long as the wire is tightened and suspended between 2 points. The Back wheel is propelled by 2 motors. The front wheel is free spinning. In case of emergency, Slothbot is equipped with touch sensor emergency shutoff switches. It also has an ultrasonic sensor, for use to see how much farther to your destination. Plus, Slothbot includes a color lamp for night rides. As soon as my newest shipment of sensors comes in, I will publish Slothbot 2.0, with new imporovements and features.
