Bridge Launching Lego Robot Answered

This bridge launching robot by Flickr user Mahjqa is fantastic!

The curled up bridge on its back is extended out up to 48cm (19 inches) over a gap before the robot  disengages from it so it may drive across. On the other side it can turn around and pick it back up!

The bridge layer alone is a feat of engineering.  Building it out of Legos, pure genius.  You know the concept well enough to turn it into a working product.  The Thunderbirds theme beats out actual military cadance.

This is a total, total... a word is yet to be invented to describe how totally whatever-it-is this is, but it is one. And a total, total one at that.

Those are verbs, like I'm using "total". But I'm paraphrasing a TV comedy...

Dang, this is awesome. I'm still hoping that's it's just a 1/12 scale model for something yet to come.

I just did, but if more people do, he'll be more likely to do so.

It seems that the LEGO company should be capitalizing on the creativity of its clientele...the only official channel on YouTube is LEGOClubTV, which seems to basically be a collection of cheesy stop-motion videos and "if you have a lot of bricks you can make things that are large." It would be nice to see them promoting things like this...not a huge number of pieces, just very clever use of the mechanics available.

This comment appears to come slightly close to conveying the intended idea. I think I'll leave it there.

the tecnical design of this "robot " amazes me , but I don't think it can be considered a robot because it is remote controled.
