To answer your question, no there is no such plate with DUPLO tubes on the bottom and LEGO studs on top. HOWEVER regular LEGO and DUPLO are completely compatible - as long as the regular LEGO bricks are at least 2x2 studs. Just cover the DUPLO table with regular LEGO bricks and you are done...(c; You could actually use regular LEGO plates too, however the ...

The LEGO Scala flowers and butterflies also fit. You can see them on this page: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=P&catString=102 Also the LEGO Belville, flower, butterfly (same as Scala) and ladybug. You can see those here: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=P&catString=48 And from LEGO Friends all the other flowers ...

If I'm understanding you correctly, you're talking about the molding cavity directly underneath the stud (that actually goes up into the stud), and not the main tube cavities under plates/bricks (that are actually offset from the studs). If that's the case, no, I'm not aware of any element that "intentionally" fits that space. First off, I don't think that ...

B. Stay with OS X Mavericks. I can confirm that bluetooth no longer works with Yosemite. Spent two hours trying to make it work, but in vain.

He's made by Tyco as part of their "Super Blocks" range You can see the guy on the label.

That figure is a Tyco Super Blocks minifigure. I can't find any sets that your figure came in, but you can see in the following picture that the soldiers are the same proportion and style as your figure. Unfortunately, Tyco Super Blocks is one of the oldest LEGO-clone brands, so there's not a lot of information on their product on the internet.

Without further specification, unless I read your question wrong, ANY normal brick-type element can be connected to the cavity under a stud - the whole principle that LEGO was based on, basically. Anything that has a stud on it will fit. If you rather meant "non-stud" elements such as hands, signs, rods, etc., please update the question to make it more ...

You can do it using EV3 Bluetooth blocks. You can send integers, string or boolean using different "mailboxes" so the receiver just need to use the Block to read from a particular mailbox to get the data. Maybe I write a post where I detail all this more because LEGO documentation isn't helpful at all.

You can only control PF IR receivers with the PF remote controls. These are the normal (8885) or the speed control (8879). With the speed remote control you can also choose different speeds. And yes, the train motor from 7897 is compatible with power functions, as long as you use a extension wire (acts like adapter from the old 9V-system to PF, 8886 or ...

The educational software of mindstorms is not yet updated.(Version 1.1.0) If you download the free version of mindstorms (Version 1.1.1) you can connect via Bluetooth under Yosemite to your brick!

You can use the EV3 bluetooth blocks in the blue tab of the programming software. One thing though: The two bricks have to have different names. Like "Kim" and "John". Check the EV3 help too.

I have run the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 software successfully on Yosemite Beta for a couple weeks. The only problem I have had is that I cannot get Bluetooth to work. The bluetooth problem appears to be at the OS level rather than a software compatibility issue though. Update: I reported this to Apple via https://bugreport.apple.com. It was marked as a ...

It is mentioned in the previous answer that the feet are slightly oblong. I snapped a few photos to illustrate how this impacts the level of compatibility between the two figure types. A standard minifigure will easily be able to 'stand' within a 1 x 2 space. In most cases, this applies to a 'Friend' as well, unless the 1 x 2 space is recessed. The ...

The only camera capable of connecting directly to the NXT is the Vision Subsystem for NXT or EV3: With modified firmware, it is possible to send images from the cam to the NXT to the computer. But trying to stream video via this technique is impractical since each frame takes about 30 seconds to send to the computer. If you had a connection over USB, it ...
