Solar Powered Lego CarBy Jeff Crystal
You know it is going to be a good day at work when you get a solar-powered Lego Car in the mail. The folks at Play-Well sent it to us after choosing to use our panels for this project (if you have children, check out Play-Well’s class locations for the best in LEGO-based engineering instruction).
Here’s the video of the car cruising through our offices.
Here’s a few close-ups of the car:
We did a quick mod of the car to put in a female 3.5×1.1mm jack so that we could easily plug and unplug the panel from the motor. You can use our “USB Out Cable 3.5×1.1” if you want to avoid cutting the plug on our panel.
Go Legos! Wanna race?
