The Mars landing brought tears of joy to many around the word, especially to engineers. If you have yet to shed your own, watch a video of the seven minutes of terror leading up to the actual touchdown. Then celebrate the good news by making your own Martian mobile.
Your very own Lego Mars Curiosity Rover can be fully functional thanks to Mindstorms. If 7 NXT Bricks, 13 NXT motors, 2 Power Function Motors, and over 1,000 Lego bricks sounds too complicated for you, find an easier version over at Cuusoo. Come September, you’ll be able to pick up a Hot Wheels replica of the rover. The 1:64 scale model can be yours for only $1.09.
Whether you’re going to make or buy a miniature, you should be knowledgeable about it. Get a breakdown of the rover’s 17 cameras over at WIRED Science.
