comment What are the pros and cons of using a Lego rental service such as Pleygo?
No Technic sets so far but it's interesting.

comment Why did LEGO create different canister for the Visorak?
I was figuring that color didn't matter just like my example about steal vs aluminum . . . but since there are THAT many different colors I'm starting to wonder. It's like minifigs where it's the same character but with a different facial expression and/or costume. Now I'm starting to wonder if it's a part of the "story" that goes with Bionicle.

comment Is the PWM on the PF Servo motor different than the PWM from an Arduino?
Oh, I've sacrificed plenty of extension cables . . . but I ran out! And not even the Lego Store carries them.

comment Is the PWM on the PF Servo motor different than the PWM from an Arduino?
I did a bit more reading and most servo motors are a three wire affair and that's what got me thinking I was missing a wire. I didn't add my pin wires to all 4 wires on the pf connector because for all the other motors they are not used and they just get in the way. Luckily I had parts to make a new connector . . . although RIP to one of my Lego LEDs :(. And these links are wonderful reads I hadn't seen before so thanks!

@Joubarc And you STILL added your own answer! You are all over the place! Of course your answer is good too and adds great links. And the graphics from that site are perfect.

@Joubarc Okay, it's fixed. You can further change it if you want (you're a moderator!) but if you have other suggestions I'll fix it further. And I should add some pictures . . . describing these things is difficult and a picture would make it way easier. I just hope this kind of question is relevant here . . . I was going to post in the electronics SE too but figured it out before I got to that.

Sorry man I was in a rush! Panic! I'll fix it after my presentation tonight. And, I do have the answer so I'll post that too. Sometimes in asking the question and having to think about it you come up with the answer on your own.

comment Why does LEGO now use studless technic designs?
Yes! Sariel and the book are great. LOTS of things I've wondered about are answered in that book. It's inspiring to read about what's possible (and even impossible). That's why I link to the book whenever possible . . . every reader of this site interested in Technic/Mindstorms should get it.
