comment Bluetooth will not connect Error code: -142016
For such a small problem you shouldn't just buy another NXT, especially if it's the PC or Bluetooth dongle that is causing an error.

The hard part was finding the right template. Avery seem to have thousands of templates. I would have preferred to have printed from Photoshop but I ended up using Avery's online service to design my sticker. I was forced to use up all four stickers.

The closest thing I could buy was an A4 Avery sticker sheet with four compartments per sheet. How can I cut out complex shaped stickers?

Now I understand why the project was set up in Japan rather then somewhere closer to home like Denmark.

@Zhaph-BenDuguid: I know about those too, but they're sold as a set , like in a calender.

comment How can I convert an image's pixels to actual LEGO colors?
This can also be done in Photoshop by cropping an image of a mosaic to the selected area, then applying the Blur -> Average filter effect. From there you can change the image mode to an indexed colour using a Lego colour pallete.

@RoryAlsop: I don't understand, It might help if I knew the piece or set in question.

@RoryAlsop: I'm not quite sure what you mean by axle friction. Which particular piece are you referring to?

comment How can I blow a stream of air for up to two minutes at a time?
I like this solution the most as a I can blow air evenly up to 7cm wides. My only problem is the technical aspect of building such a device, like making the housing reasonably airtight and circular.

I believe the bricks are physically identical.

I'm not quite sure what you had in mind by 'toggle switches'

Using linear actuators would require a processor of some sorts to follow a program like a NXT brick. I'm looking for a more mechanical solution.

If you blow hard enough you can play a note from about 2-3cm's away. That would only blow a bunch of notes but with the film would be able to block it out.

comment How can I blow a stream of air for up to two minutes at a time?
@NathanStohlmann: Yes. I intend to blow air across all notes whilst having a piece of film cover most of the notes. It seems more efficient then having a motor go back and forth blowing each note individually.

comment Can an axle be removed from this 'brick paradox'?
I was thinking a toothpick wouldn't damage the bricks but be too brittle.
