But now it's been destroyed again in less than a month :( Someone at work accidentally knocked it over, and neatly cleaned up the parts into a recycling basket. I wonder what her expression was as it came crashing toward her?
Because I never want to have to do this again, I made a time lapse video of rebuilding it this time. It turned out pretty cool:
In order to take the time lapse pictures I had two options:
- I could've bought $100 camera thingy from the store (cheaper ones were out of stock).
- Or I could build a Lego Mindstorms robot to trigger my camera using my existing remote trigger.
We're getting better at this. This is probably the most damaged it's been, but it only took 4 hours to get all 4500 pieces back together again. I feel like I spent longer trying to get the camera trigger to behave! It took a frame every 13 seconds or so, and was surprisingly reliable. It was also surprised that neither the camera nor the RCX needed it's batteries changed.
