Ever wanted to precisely control pneumatic actuators without using up extra sensors? Here's a technique for how. It does take two of the pneumatic valves, but it's a clever (and well-documented) design. There are some other goodies hidden elsewhere in the builder's Brickshelf gallery as well. It's well worth a look in there for other building techniques and ideas (Technic and otherwise). The pneumatic system in particular is a gem, and I can't wait to see a renaissance of pneumatics-enhanced creations following the new commercial release of pneumatics elements next year (they've been available in the past, but they were discontinued for a few years - the one set currently featuring pneumatic parts is only available to the educational market).
