Giant LEGO Electric Skateboarder

I made a 3D Printed Giant Electric LEGO Skateboarding Minifig! Check out the videos below or scroll down for pictures and words.

This Minifig is based on Emmet from the LEGO movie – he’s 10x times bigger than a normal minifig, standing at around half a metre tall.

I designed 3D printed skateboard trucks that actually lean to steer:

Each wheel has a brushless motor in its hub, and each motor has a separate motor driver.

The hips of the Minifig have a servo in that allows him to lean in either direction on the board.

I also found that it steered better after implementing differential drive on each side of the board, so one pair of wheel runs faster and it steers – check out the second video above.
