mBot + Lego Power Functions = Soccerbots

I came across this blog where a teacher in China had discovered that Lego can be used with mBots!

So I tried it out in class and it works amazingly well.

You need a few extra parts but you can buy them at a hardware store or buy them as part of the Hardware Pack from Makeblock:

You just need 8 M4x14 bolts and 8 M4 nuts.

The spacing in the holes of the mBot chasis on the front and back are exactly the distance to attach a technic beam by these bolts.

If you buy the Hardware Pack, the bolts will work with the screwdriver that came with your mBot.

You will find instructions on how to make Soccerbots here.
