In this attachment two knob wheels "(32072 ) Technic Gear 4 Knob" engage at 90 degrees angle. One of the knob wheels is a part of the robot and the other is a part of a pinless active attachment. The purpose of this attachment is to demonstrate How NOT to build attachments.
Build the attachment and experiment. See for yourself how it "jumps" up and down when the knob wheels are rotating and you hold the lever by hand.

The video shows why you should not build attachments such as "Crappy Active Attachment For SUV Box Robot". In the video one can see how the knob gear wheels start "jumping", once a force is applied to the lever.
There are a few main challenges with box robots and in the following tutorial we would like to resolve them. Read on and let's see how we could do this.
