I have a LEGO Mindstorms NXT set and since I bought it I almost never used it. Sometimes I think I could do something interesting with it, but I usually either feel like just copying a previous made project or stuck with no ideas of what to do. The obvious answer probably is
"If you try some project of other people at some point you start connecting the dots and come up with your own ideas"
I would like to know if other people had this feeling in the past what they ended up doing.
As for background information: I have no experience with Technic sets, but have experience with computer science and math.
