Really cool dude! Rating: *****

Love it!

Good job! I made a pinball machine once, but that was before I had my NXT. It used a RCX motor to turn technic pieces kind of like that. Excellent machine looks really fun! Five stars.

Nice work! Brilliant speed , I LOVE IT!!!

awesome one, love the decoration of it :) Check out my projects too! :)

How do you post a video without getting the page not found page?

Hey! This is me(you know who)

really cool

Looks great! It could use a little more decorating though. ;)

After some experimenting and research it seems that whenever you try to change the file instead of deleting the file it ADDS that numeral to the file. For example if I try to put 5 into the file which is already 8 it somehow adds 5 to the file (I have no idea how this works). For the program you need to delete the file IMMEDIATELY before you write a change into the file. This is a pain and I know

it, but it worked for me and I hope it works for you.

That is a cool pinball game you got there. Maybe you can make the pinball game a bit bigger by getting more bricks?

Very, very cool! Now all you need is some kind of scoring system!

Very cool




Cool! I built one with instructions that had a scoring system under bonus models for NXT 2.0


Nice job! You definitely took on a challenge with this one, but conquered it like a pro! ;) Please follow me back!

Just amazing.

great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)


Now that is so cool!

I would want one. Isn't there any blue?

Nice Job! It looks like you spent a lot of time on it.

awsome build. I realy like it :)

Awesome!!! I give you 5 stars!


I see you used iMovie for the video.

@lukeshev: You betcha! Thanks everyone for all the comments. I appreciate it.

awesome your the best! *****

NXT Pinball

Hello everyone. This is my new and improved Lego pinball game. It uses 2 motors to spin Technic pieces which are on the board. Both of them are on very high gear ratios so that they really give the ball a kick. The balls are just the regular balls from the NXT kit. The 3rd motor ejects the balls from the top of the board after the touch sensor is pressed. When the ball get past the flippers it falls into a "cup" and is sensed by the color sensor. I built all of this with NXT 2.0 but I've programed it with the ev3 software. At the moment all the program does is release balls, spin motors 2 and 3, and sense them with the color sensor. It can recorded your scores by timing how long the ball is in play. I've been trying to get it to save the high scores but so far it hasn't worked very well. I've up loaded the program anyway, if you'd like to look at it and give me feedback I would really appreciate it! Hope you enjoy it, and don't forget to vote!
