I'm a engineer with people skills. I enjoy politics, English language, mathematics, and programming. In my free time, I build with LEGO bricks, I dance, and I break things (generally in order to fix them again).

I have a B.S. in Engineering, and I work as an IT Project Manager in the Transportation Industry.

comment The gyro bot doesn't balance
The idea is that the gyro bot is self stabilizing. That's how gyroscopes work. It sounds like you are not using the gyroscope module correctly.

revised Is there a LEGO Tyre Shop set?
Fixed grammar. Removed "building" and "shopping" tags as it's not about building techniques or exchanging goods.

comment Are there LEGO compatible CAD Files For Injection Mold Manufacturing?
To clarify, are you trying to get custom pieces created, or custom sets created? If pieces, the LDRAW files are grossly insufficient. You'd be better off taking 3D scans of the LEGO pieces as a start. If sets, look at what Brickmania does: buys bulk new LEGO, and then repackages it into their own boxes with their own instruction manuals.

comment Programming sensor to follow light
This is a duplicate of your previous question. You shouldn't open multiple questions to solve the same problems. Update your existing question and respond to some of the questions in the comments and you will get a better answer.

As of Nov 2014, the top link doesn't work. And, honestly, I don't think this was ever a valid solution.

comment How to program light sensor to follow moving light using NXT
It sounds like you are unfamiliar with how the light sensor works. First off, it's not directional. Secondly, it detects all light, including ambient light, so your LED may not be bright enough to even register on the light sensor.

comment How can I prevent my train from derailing?
I'm wondering if the flex track is causing more problems than it fixes. If you allow the track to move with any vibration from the train, sure, the track may not come apart, but that means that the track is also no longer dampening the vibrations from the train, which could be allowing the train to jump the track. Non-sequitur: maybe you need to add some more weight above the front axle. Try something like: bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=73090b

comment How can I prevent my train from derailing?
So, is the problem that the train is coming off the track, or the track is coming apart? I'm not sure what you mean by "...the whole things falls down." Also, what happens if you don't have the flex track?
