First of all, that fan would'nt work. And second of all...I think theres no water in the video because you don't want to take the risk. I certainly would not put electronics together.


Sam9423, thank you so much for commenting. The fan doesn't blow because of I)Lego aerodynamics, and II) Because I ran out of black connector pegs and had to improvise. I couldn't make a shield for the fan motor because, again, I ran out of black connector pegs. This is just my opinion, but I think the robot just needs to display it's purpose and design.


Ok, I run out of connector pegs all the time!


great project and all but ur only allowed to use LEGO parts


Can you make a windows document?

This is my first entry into the SummerFun building challenge. This strange-looking machine helps to cool you down. Upon startup, it begins to spray water from a spraybottle into the fan in front. This creates an extremely soothing misty breeze! Whenever you are nice and cool and you want it to stop, just push the touch sensor.(In the video there is no water in the spraybottle because I am inside.)
