7th January

On the 7th January, we made the header of the blog.


We have also finished the articles and we did soe more tests of our robot.



Racmlx Litterature

It deals with people. Alfred Leaning, Peter Bogert, Milton Ashe and Susan Calvin are sitting around a table talking about a robot named 34RB who is mind ready.

The robot told Susan that Milton loved her, and after something happened to them. So Lanning felt hurt because the robot lied to him. Actually, he lied to everybody.

We don’t like this story because we think it’s very boring; and took great lengths to describe the scene of debate. And the characters spend a lot of time discussing the line about what to make with the Robot Herbie.

Moreover when the robot said “He loves you” to Dr.Calvin for a minute Dr Calvin did not speak. She replied “You’re wrong”, “But I never thought that” the psychologist stopped. suddenly, she looked up. A girl visted him here; “She was pretty blonde and slim; Who was she?”

We don’t know why they are talking about love. This is incomprehensible for us.

Racmlx Conclusion

At the end of this MID Robotics, we’ve built a NXT robot who can avoid obstacles and goes through a labyrinth. We’ve written some articles on robots in literature and on robots in movies (I-robot and Star Wars). We’ve also recorded a radioshow and we’ve debated on the use of a humanoid robot in our houses.

10th December

At the 10th December, we have finished the robot, and we have started the programming.

While Matthieu was writing the program, Camille, Aymeric, Xangru and Linyan started to write articles for the blog, like the Presentation, or the NXT Project.

Here is a screenshot of the NXT Programming softawre named LEGO MINDTORMS.

3rd December

At the first lesson of the NXT Project, we chose the robot that we had to do and we began to build it. In his program the robot had just to move and don’t hit obstacles around himself. It is named « Explorer » because it explores the world.

Here is the model we take to build our robot.


Here is Matthieu who starts to built the Robot.


The NXT Project by Racmlx

For the Interdisciplinairy Module about Robotics, we have to create a robot with the NXT Block. The NXT Block is a block used for programing robots in Lego.

With this block, we have to do a Robot in Lego.

First, we search  what robot we will built. After, we have to built the robot, and finally, we need to program the robots with a programming software.

For see all the building of the Robot step by step, look at the Racmlx Diary.

And to see the final version of our Robot, see the video:


Star Wars

In Star Wars, there are two teams, the first is the Jedi the good force of the power and the sith who are the the dark side of the power. Anakin who was from the good side of the power changed for the sith but he had a child who went to the good side of the power and at the end both will fight and in this fight Anakin told to his son Luke that he was his father. At the end the good side of the power won because Darth Vador killed the boss of the Siths.

In Star Wars, George Lucas ‘s movies, there are many different robots because it’s a movie of science fiction, it’s based on the future so George Lucas put robots everywhere to do everything that you can’t imagine. Now I will show you the different robots in Star Wars and the cyborgs

R2-D2 : A resourceful astromech droid, R2-D2 served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, he shows his braveful more than times and rescues his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot’s assistant, he formed an unlikely but enduring friendship with the droid C-3PO.

C-3PO : was created with waste of metal by Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine. He was created to help Anakin’s mother for house chores. Later he met his best robot friend R2-D2 when Anakin be the friend of Padmé Amidala

General Grievous : General Grievous is a brilliant military strategist who can’t be bothered with compassion or mercy. He is avery strong cyborg> ordre des mots : adj devant le nom with different fighting skills like with two light saber.

Darth Vader : is Anakin Skywalker but he went to the Sith team to gain the dark side force. Darth Vader was put in a black armor. The man was mortally hurted by a light saber in a duel, and the dark suit includes machinery who keeps Darth Vader alive.

In Star Wars there are droids too who are robots but they don’t have an imporant role. In the film there are many people who look like robots like Boba Fett or clone commander cody.

Our group is composed of 5 students, 3 French and 2 Chinese : Matthieu, Xiaoyi, Aymeric, Linyan, and Camille.

We are in Seconde B at the LP2I. For an Interdisciplinary Module of Robotics, we have to make a blog. You can follow what we have done in the Diary, see the evolution of the robot we made for the NXT Project, and read about the influence of the robots in movies and literature.

Enjoy reading !



I-Robot – Robots in movies

In the beginning of « I robot » we can see two police men talking about maybe a robot called Sonny was killed his owner, one of the two men wanted to talk with the robot so he asked the other man about it. The boss does not agree with him, After a long talking, the man entered the interrogation room, when he is entering he winked an eye. So when the robot first seen him,the first word that he said is « what does it mean: to wink ? » so the man answered that is a sign of trust, it’s a human thing, you doesn’t understand. The robot says « My father tried to teach me the feelings .» so the man thinks of the designer of the robot who is the scientist and was killed by someone. So after that the conversation between the man and the robot changed to the death of scientist. The man wanted to know why the robot hides when it know the doctor was killed, because he thinks that the robot does not have feelings.

We can think the robot is a bad robot and he had killed the doctor.
