LAVA R3X is a pretty busy robot. He got himself featured on the front cover of a book that just got published, and now he’s taking the spotlight to show that robots are keeping up with the times too
I caught him red-handed taking a selfie with a rare, framed EV3 box signed by the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 design team. I don’t blame him though — not many robots get the chance to take that picture!
LAVA R3X took the picture all by itself using a Logitech C270 USB webcam. Both the webcam and a Netgear WNA 1100 Wifi Dongle are connected to the brick via a USB hub, which is just visible under the robot’s right arm. With ev3dev, this setup worked right out of the box. (Anyone need more reasons to see why ev3dev is cool?)
