comment Rebuilding the Millennium Falcon 7965 with unsorted bricks?
I hope 'consigning the whole project to a rubbish bin' was purely metaphorical? I would cringe at the thought of perfectly good LEGO going to waste.

comment Is it possible to connect an RCX to an iOS device?
The iPhone (2007) and RCX (1998) are a generation apart. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's unlikely anyone has tried to connect the two devices.

comment How can I create a simple steering mechanism for a car?
My solution doesn't have to be motorised, you can use a gear or pulley wheel to manually adjust the wheel angle.

comment How to make Mindstorms respond differently, depending on which sensor is triggered?
That's true but you will also need to place it in a loop, otherwise it will run through each block only once.

NXT-G doesn't quite work that way. It runs through a set of instructions once, unless it's placed in a loop.

comment What is the difference between Shuttle Adventurer (10213) and Shuttle Expedition (10231)
10231 has 26 more pieces and was released the next year. I'd have to look into what pieces they are. Perhaps it's something promotional?
