i'm there!!!

1St comment! I'M gonna enter ;)

cool i think i can do this!

ME to

Oh, I know exactly what I'm going to do... you're gonna love it guys!

Why is it called EV3 challenge if you also may enter it with NXT or RCX? About the Icon NXTlog challenge: i cant find the winners back in the news!

oh sorry i read now in the news about the Icon challenge.

really liking the new website, hope to enter something.

I'm brand new to building with LEGO Technic, but I'll try this with the EV3 set I'm currently buying this minute (in fact, I'm number 60 in the cube). How ridiculous!

If I make a robot using Ev3 education set, it will count also, right?

I might try to enter this one. But we are only supposed to build it with parts that come with the set right?

I like the idea of the challenge, and a suggestion for the website because i dont know where to send this in so hopefully the mods will get it, is to make tags links so we can easily find robots with the same tags without searching for them.

Cool. So we can build something with NXT right?

RCX's Do your stuff! YEAH!!!

i have already entered in NXT

is there a limit to your entries?


im going to build a cool following robot!

may i use a little light to control the robot? I have make a really cool system with that, but i dont know if i am use it......

Will it except robots from books?

Please check out my robot that I am soon entering called "Code Scan Casino Style Game".

Robots from books? I don't think so...
