While the Vex system totally stomps the lego robotics, it would be cool to join the two systems together for a super robot. What I had in mind was creating pop rivets with tops on them so that they can join all types of lego, except Duplo, 'cause, well, that’s preschool stuff (literally). What i mean is both “standard” and Technic. Have one with the end of a cross beam, one with a “socket” for a cross beam, one with a round socket for the round connectors, and then one with a round connector (the ones used in technic that aren’t cross beams). And then, of course, one with the “standard” lego attachment.
For anyone fluent in Legoian, please forgive me. It’s been a very long time since I’ve spoken Lego Lingo and I know I’ve severely misidentifed several parts. Anyone with the “proper” terms is welcome to correct me.
I’ll see if I can’t get either some CAD files posted soon or some drawings…one of the two. Or if anyone beats me to it, that’s cool too.
