LEGO Robotic Boat - Simple and Smart


This robotic water bug is called "Omnibot" and it was made using LEGO. The most interesting this about this machine is that it is very simple to make.

In the video that you can view after the break you will be able to spot that the robot floats with the help of pontoons. These pontoons were made from the water bottles that the developer got from the 2003 LEGO hockey sets.

Another interesting thing is that the Omnibot has a motor that allows it to move on water. In addition, the LEGO boat is equipped with a camera that allows viewing the environment that the robot is crossing.
