If you are going to use Lego pneumatic parts in your design, it may be worth considering the technical specifications of some of the Lego Pneumatic parts. In most cases - this is not a worry but who knows when these figures may come in handy?

We have here SI and imperial references. Remember that these figures may vary slightly between items - and have been somewhat averaged.

Learn Robotics Programming

Time to build your own robot! Using a Raspberry Pi with parts and some time, you can use my book to learn how to make and program a robot with automatic behaviours.
