My partner, a Java engineer, has been wanting to experiment with robot programming, so I bought him the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0, whose firmware can be replaced with Java based Lejos. I sorta forgot his birthday, so I owe him an extra nice holiday gift.
From the reviews I’ve read, however, once we get our robot geek on, we will have lots of small parts and no way to organize them in between robots. Knowing my partner, this means he will use lots of ziplock bags and an old shoebox.
While I’m not fundamentally opposed to recycling shoeboxes, I am sort of tired of the many ugly shoeboxes sitting around our house. Any ideas for a more interesting way to store robot parts? With the idea that we will likely add additional kits to the mix in the future? -Sunny
There are some problems that are so very indicative of an offbeat home — robot storage is one of them. And who better to help you out with your problem then the Homies themselves?
Homies, how would/do you store your robot parts?
