The Marie Curie Configuration of the M.O.P is a small tethered Rover with all power and data being supplied by long (120cm) electric cables connected to an external LEGO® RCX.

The M.O.P has a low gear ratio (72:1 - about 1.3cm/sec) for steady control and movement, large wide wheels for grip and traction, and a high ground clearance to avoid most obstacles. The M.O.P also has a zero turning circle (It can turn 360º within its own footprint). It carries a tethered LEGO® Studio Camera within its payload bay which is pointed forward to give the operator a clear, wide view the oncoming terrain.
