Robotics Monday: Fun Tic-Tac-Toe 'bot

Name of Model: Head-to-head Tic-Tac-Toe

Details: Here's a fun model - it's a simple bot that plays Tic-Tac-Toe. Although it was built from a larger LEGO collection, I suspect that you could reproduce the effect with just one LEGO MINDSTORMS ROBOTICS INVENTION SYSTEM set. A light sensor scans black and white blocks and a claw the places the next piece in the game. A "play complete" button is provided for the opponent, which can be a person or another robot. An effective YouTube video is available (and embedded here) - and there are also additional photos. Please note that the additional photos are on Brickshelf and will no longer be accessible as of July 31st, 2007.
This is Monday's model of the day
