This first volume of The LEGO Power Functions Idea Book, Machines and Mechanisms, showcases small projects to build with LEGO Technic gears, motors, gadgets, and other moving elements. You'll find hundreds of clever, buildable mechanisms, each one demonstrating a key building technique or mechanical principle.
You'll learn to build sliding doors, grasping claws, rack-and-pinion mechanisms, and ball-shooting devices of every sort!
Each model includes a list of required parts and colorful photographs that guide you through the build without the need for step-by-step instructions. As you build, you'll explore the principles of simple machines, gear systems, power translation, and more.
Yoshihito Isogawa is a LEGO luminary with 46 years of building experience. In addition to running Isogawa Studio, Inc., he regularly holds LEGO workshops, lectures at schools and science museums, and creates LEGO models for events and exhibitions. He is the author of the popular LEGO Technic Idea Book series (No Starch Press), as well as other Japanese-language LEGO titles.
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.
