Sebastian is a six-legged creature, which technically makes it not-a-crab. Anyway, it still walks sideways and is amazing to build and watch.
You can find the program for Sebastian here.

Cápa means shark in Hungarian.
The robot resembles a live hammershark. It uses a medium motor to move its tail, which is used for the shark to turn. It moves forward with a large motor and two tyres. Its jaws open and close with a second large motor. The two touch sensors at the front are purely for aesthetics but you can use them if you like. Finally the head has an ultrasonic sensor which detects if something is a potential "prey". This resembles the real hammer sharks' ability to sense with their "hammer".

Do you have a friend for a sleepover? This might be the perfect robot for you! It is a football gate, guarded by Fint, the goalkeeper robot. You can control him, by using the remote controller, that consists of two Touch Sensors. Take turns making penalty shots and have a blast with this awesome robot!
What we recommend:
- Using a big LEGO wheel from your set as a football ball.
- If you throw the wheel too fast for the robot to catch, increase the distance between the place you shoot the ball from and the robot.

The GorillaBot walks on its two arms, using two large motors as forearms. It also has this awesome head, which actually is pretty useless as an ultrasonic sensor, unless you lift its eyebrows.

Susan comes from Sue, which is the name of the largest fully preserved specimen of T-Rexes.
Mark comes from Marc Bolan, who is the lead singer/gutarist of the band T-Rex.
The robot is made to resemble a T-Rex (Susan) chasing a car (Mark).
The T-Rex uses a Large motor to go forward and backward. The other Large motor is used for the car, which resembles a very simple 4-wheel vechicle. Susan's task is to spot Mark using the current power option of the motor rotation sensor. As T-Rexes can not notice you if you are moving very slow, Mark is trying his best to move really slow so that he doesn't get spotted!

Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpius constellation.
The robot's main purpose is to show two different grabbing mechanisms - one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical pincers use a medium motor and the horizontal pincers use a large motor. Additionally the robot has a sting mechanism which uses another large motor. For a head it uses an EV3 ultrasonic sensor. With the sensor, the robot can sense when the prey is close enough for a suprise attack.

Alice is a lovely little bird, with some amazing mechanisms on her feet. It uses two large motors and one medium one as a head, which drives both its wings.

A turtle robot with 2 sensors- ultrasonic and gyro, capable of following her course and navigating through anything. Just don't annoy it, or it will hide in its shell or even come and bite you.

A fearsome and dangerous robot. It will find a place to hide and patiently wait in ambush.
NB! This robot requres bluetooth connectivity, as its USB port is blocked in the construction.

An awesome ski-jet robot, steering with a medium motor and powered by a single large motor. It also has a pair of inclined treads, making it especially well-suited for the harsh winter terrain.
*There is a mistake in this robot you will have to find. How would you make it work?

Building instructions for the Formula 1 Racing Car, built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3. It can turn with the help of a small motor and is driven by two large ones.
An example program for using this robot could be found at: https://www.fllcasts.com/programs/692hkz-comet-program

A LEGO door with a touch sensor, that knows when it's open. It has a stopper and even makes the familiar noise of a creaky door. You can use it by its own or put it in a model of a house.

A nice little robot that can tell if there is anything on top of it. It only uses one touch sensor. The idea of the robot is to be used in classes with students to explore different interesting security options. This robot in particular could detect when the object placed on it gets "stollen". Have you ever watched Indiana Jones? :)

Piscis from Latin means fish.
Piscis is a LEGO fish robot which uses a very interesting mechanism for turning. It's tail uses a medium motor to turn left or right. On its end there are two wheels. When the robot turns its tail, those wheels navigate the movement of the robot and it turns. This results in a cool turning mechanism which resembles how fish move.
Piscis also uses a large motor to move forward and backward. The touch sensor at the front helps it sense danger and return quickly back to the reef.
Watch out for the tooth wheels, they bite!

This is a version of the Midas - a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Clam robot. The main difference between the two robots is that the motors are flipped.
The robot uses two Large Mindstorms EV3 Motors to open and close its shell. There are four hoses on the top of the shell which can be reshaped to form different shell styles. It also uses two black bent beams for eyebrows that can be moved to change the expression of the clam. A Castor Ball is used to represent its pearl.

Dwell is a car built with a LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 set. It uses the medium motor for powering the back wheel and one more medium motor for rotating the front wheels and thus turning. Of course, there is a differential at the back.
