Yes, we’re all excited! FIRST released rudimentary descriptions of this year’s Kit of Parts, which included mention of two new items listed only as:
NEW omni wheel and
new game sensor
We’re curious as to what the new game sensor might be (and would have appreciated a more specific identification if only in the interest of consumer information) , but are very excited about the possibilities presented by an omni wheel. Might it look like this:
Lego Mindstorms NXT holonomic wheel or omniwheel
You can get an up-close and personal look at the Holonomic wheel at the School of Robotics website.
Of course, this may not be it at all, but oh the possibilities!!
