A must for First Lego League or mindstorm aficionado
March 2, 2017
Yoshihito Isogawa's books are a wonderful learning guide for young mindstorm and/or lego technic enthusiasts. I have used his series for years to train my First Lego League teams on simple machines. They have gained so many ideas from Isogawa's books to build some really amazing FLL robots. As one of my players stated: A complex machine is nothing more than a conglomeration of simple machines. How right he is. And many of the simple machines he has used he learned from Isogawa's books.
The Power Functions book utlizes the Lego power function motor set, but can be used with mindstorms or RCX motors. It provides a plethora of mechanisms functions with a variety of gear types, worm drives, turntables, etc. He also has ideas on creating a variety of angular movements. My First Lego League team has said that power functions is Isogawa's best book yet, and are still using his book as they get ready for the FLL World Festival.
If you are a mindstorms fan, technic fan, or FLL coach or player, this book really is a must.
