9 NXT Rover Base for LEGOWORLD Photo Bot

Name of Model: Driving test Lego Mindstorms NXT Rover Bot or Rover-under-contruction-for-Legoworld-2010 (or perhaps there's a newer name for the complete version with the camera)
Created by: Steen

Details: In this video, this giant rover base is being run by remote control. At LEGOWORLD in Zwolle right now, it's operating autonomously, controlled by 9 NXT programmable bricks. Although the video and links above don't show the full version, they're impressive enough already and give you a sense of the sheer size of this 'bot. There's a close-up of the treads that shows that they're actually made out of hundreds (or more likely, thousands) of 3-stud long Technic beams. Another video from the event shows the completed robot driving around taking pictures from inside the crowd.

I'm guessing that we'll be seeing many more photos of this (and taken by this) model after the event is over...which I'll be rounding up here as I see them.
