HSG43: LEGO Mindstorms: Super Robo Rally with Steve Hassenplug

HSG43: LEGO Mindstorms: Super Robo Rally with Steve Hassenplug

September 25, 2018

LEGO Super User, Steve Hassenplug, joins us to talk about some truly remarkable creations and how they came to be. Steve created Super Robo Rally using LEGO Mindstorms and Raspberry Pi based on the award-winning game, Robo Rally by Richard Garfield (of Magic the Gathering fame). 

Steve is an accomplished builder, joining a special group of adult Lego builders to help improve LEGO Mindstorms. He was featured in Wired Magazine talking about the experience and of course, we get into it on the show as well. He is also partner to Brickworld, the nationally-known, family-friendly LEGO events. He tours with them as well as makes time every year for Gen Con.

Steve's creation kicks off our Gen Con every year and is near and dear to our hearts. If you've been listening to this podcast you've heard us gush about these guys since the very beginning with Episode 1. We're already looking forward to next year and can hopefully pick up a full run again and make it an event for the whole HSG family at Gen Con 2019!
