@YuSheng. Chen: I think double sided servos would be amazing, first you could have a little more stability when using a claw or a long arm and with double sided motors we could have different sizes and you could have a machine that can stay upright but could still be under the motor limit.

But with this, for a challenge, the double sided motor would count for a two motors/servos. Just for more of a challenge, yet more for stability. And this is just a idea, so it could be toyed with, a lot!

Let us use more lego pieces because some things are hard to build when we have a limit on how many we can have.

I believe that Harrison already made that suggestion.

I have a new suggestion, how about we have a device, like Bluetooth with the NXT, so that you can remotely control a link. I know this will probably not be permitted in competitions, but it would be fun to mess around with.

You can already implement this with wifi(I had a basic cli version last year for demo-ing the robot)
