Hello, welcome to my webpage of my own contraptions. My name is Walter Lee and I am an Adult Fan of Lego (AFOL). I have a Four year Degree in Computer Science and I've always been fascinated with mechanical things. I work with both Lego Technic and Classic Lego. My Lego interest also includes Mindstorm RIS-NXT-EV3, 9 volt Lego trains, RC Legos, and Lego Educational Dacta systems. I like things that move and so many of my own creations have moving parts and function is some way or another. To demonstration some of my Lego creation's functionality I have embedded videos for some of them, e.g. the Power Function T-Rex Dinosaur Robot or how to make a lego bracelets. I try make to make it a habit to test every one of my creations for functional performance.
I came from a poor family but I was fortunate enough to be given two large Lego set (the big wheel set with blue pieces, and town site set with the "Esso garage" printed white block) as christmas gifts in the 1960s when I was a child - I stopped playing with Legos around 1968 (?4th grade?).
It was about 2009 when I started buying Lego sets as gifts for my nephew and niece that I decided to buy the Lego Mindstorm NXT 2.0 for myself just to study in my spare time. I found the set rather limiting and realized that to do more I needed something extra. which led me to researching Lego Educational Dacta systems and Technic systems. Soon afterwards I started posting my own creations here on this website.
I'm a member of the Washington DC Metro area Lego User Group, the Washington DC Metro Area Lego Train Club, and the Charm City Lego User Group. If you have questions about any of the MOCs on this site, leave a comment and I'll respond.
