Happy Fourth of July to my fellow American readers!
If you're in one of the states that allow fireworks, be careful! Fireworks can be dangerous. Today's video is an automated robot that can light your fireworks for you.
This robot was built with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT, light sensors(one for navigation and one for detecting when the firework is lit), and an Ultrasonic detector (to find the height of the firework fuse). It's a simple robot that performs a simple task, but neat nonetheless.
