New Game Season Mystery Part – An OMNI WHEEL!!

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

or this:

Lego NXT holonomic robot

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!!
