Finished my first robot
« on: August 08, 2010, 09:18:26 PM »
So I have finished my first robot, it has been a long 9 months but its been a lot of fun and turned out to be a lot better than I thought it would.  Of course there are always some improvements to be made, mostly cosmetic, but nonetheless its presentable.  You might remember us from the last contest -we lost.  We will probably polish up the tutorial and try again next time.

We will be adding more pictures and videos this week as we have just finished it, so check back often.

oh, and it shoots rapid fire too when the fire button is held down.

Tell me what you think:

Hi,

If it's supposed to be autonomous, what's with the wired controller you use?

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...

It autonomously listens to his every command, duh! ::)

Yeah originally it was going to be autonomous, so we called it autonomous then we altered our plans and made it manually controlled, the website however still bears the original name.
