Introduction: MINDSTORMS Robot Pumpkin

About: MINDSTORMS Community Partner, ROBOTMAK3R! Making robots out of LEGO is my hobby.

Thanksgiving Sunday afternoon fun with my LEGO MINDSTORMS and a cute little pumpkin ;)

Watch a short video of it on my Instagram https://instagram.com/p/BLXAbq4BVue/

Step 1: Carve the Pumpkin

(I like to roast the seeds with olive oil, sea salt and pepper on a baking paper sheet in the oven at 350)...
So now that your Pumpkin is carved out and cleaned inside you are ready to put some MINDSTORMS in it and bring it to life.

I started with a rover base with 2 long beams going upwards that i passed through the pumpkin to hold it in place. Then from the inside I added the motor to make the arms move and an Ultrasonic sensor to detect objects [and look cool].

Step 2: Have Fun Decorating

Using whatever parts give personality to your pumpkin. I like how the red glow of the ultrasonic sensor turned out on this funny bot.

Step 3: Programming

I used the Bluetooth connected MINDSTORMS Programming App to program the pumpkin bot.
