I'm not really sure what happened... I remember Legos from childhood, of course, like anyone, and later, I remember being complacent that my mother wanted to sell my childhood set (now I know she asked less than a fifth of its worth).
Now, though, the insidious Lego Creature has resurrected itself, in thousands of the rectiliner extensions that are all we can see of this great four-(or more?)-dimensional entity.
I have begun to acquire sets of Lego pseudopoda. I was fine until I found myself calling Lego sales and asking "What's your most complicated set?" and ended up with a dinosaur being delivered to my office. Now, the list has grown; here's the current status:
|1996||8485||Technic||Dinosaur/Helicopter||Control Center, motors|
|1996||4150||Freestyle||(it was a free partyfavor)|
|1997||8480||Technic||Spaceshuttle/Submarine||Motors, fiber optics|
|1998||Mindstorms||Robotics Invention System||MIT brick-derived
3 sensor, 3 motor (+1 intrinsic), infrared i/o, programmable, small LCD display, int/ext power
Other interesting items:
|9751||Dacta||Serial Interface and Transformer|
|9701||Dacta||Control Lab Building Set|
6 sensor, 4 motor, infrared/audio outputs, LCD display
2 sensor, 2 motor, infrared i/o, Microship PIC 16C84 cpu
