This is just a little project I did cause i saw the mouse so i was like i want to do a whole lego guy but it would never fit in a mouse so i took this container that has been kicking around for a while and took a extra USB cord i had and put them together.


Parts List:
-100ohm resistor
-Blue LED
-Plastic container
-Tin Foil
-Lego Guy
-USB Cord
-Electric Tape(to cover parts of the container that your not allowed to see)

Do they still sell erector sets? I haven't seen them in a good number of years. I bet erector sets would make a great robotics platform to attach some microcontrollers to.

That is exactly why I bought my set.....the company that makes them is Meccano. I actually found mine on sale at Wal Mart, and begged my wife to buy it for me for Christmas.

Woah that is a lot fancier than the stuff they have out. It kind of looks all prefab. I hope this isnt the only thing you could build with it.
