NXT Maze

This is NOT the right way to create a maze for your Mindstorms NXT robot. We tried the floor first, and stripped a nice bit of finish off in one spot. I wasn't willing to put tape on the new table so we tried the table cloth. As expected, every time the robot tried to make a turn the cloth bunched under the wheels. I could have taped the sides of the table down, but once again I was afraid to tape the table. So I promised Eryn I'd clean the back of the garage this weekend and we could turn the old Third District Nurses MNA board table into our robot table. You can't see it very well, but there's a green X at the end of the maze that marks the pressure plate.
