comment Identifying Lego kits from unopened bags for library
I suspect that the intention is that the exact sets don't matter, and they may even vary between kits. Because those pieces are going to end up really mixed very quickly, so either you're going to spend a lot of time policing and sorting, or you'll end up with one big pile of pieces. Personally I would resign myself to that now and move on...

comment How many ways can six 8-peg lego blocks of six different colors be combined?
@Bonifer people connect simultaneously in much simpler ways than Lego bricks (Sam knows Bob or not) and in much more complex ways (Sam has heard that Bob is not very nice, but from someone Sam thinks is unreliable). There's not a good match to the Lego "one stud to the left" relationship modelling.

comment Strain Gauge on Lego Bridge
A pure mechanical strain gauge seems more in the spirit of Lego. And more likely to work and be robust. I suspect you could make a simple "spring balance" type gauge quite easily using a rack piece and an 8T gear, with either rubber bands or suspension print parts. Add a cardboard circle as backing and "calibration" just consists of adding weights and marking points on the dial.

comment How can I use 1 motor for grabbing/lifting and another for moving?
Typical solutions involve staggering functions, so at the limit of one motions travel the other motion starts. For example, combine lifting with gripping by making the lift happen when the grip stalls (many older crane grabs work this way)
