Hello there, I have made an Lego NXT 2.0 Plants vs zombies cone head zombie:D
this zombie does not need programming, but simple apps such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.jfedor.nxtremotecontrol&hl=en
or
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/inxt-remote/id317399938?mt=8
for your android or apple device will do the job:D
Note that this robot is a heavily modified version of the original Alpha REX 2.0, so i will NOT show you how to make the main body of the alpha rex as its already included in your NXT software. All you need to do is build the legs and body, then STOP and come back to this instructable.
But before you begin pls see what this zombie can do!


 If you like this instructable pls vote for me for the various contests ive entered such as the sphero zombie contest! :D

I can tell you like Plants V. Zombies. :3 The only thing that I think should be improved is that you could make the arms shorter somehow. But don't listen to me, because I don't actually play Plants V. Zombies, and maybe the traffic cone head zombie really does have that long of arms. Anyways, a really nice job. I voted for it in everything. :D

Hi, very true arms should be shorter, but eh i cannot really make it shorter due to the position of the "arm stopper " lego piece so thats the problem:(
That sucks. Really nice job, though, and I see a little ribbon at the top of this instructable. Does that mean you've won, because you definitely deserve to. :3
NXTHacker (author)  DarkOwlProductions1 year ago

:O Lucky! I haven't been featured yet. D: I'm sure it'll happen someday, though. :D
