$50 Robot vs Stampy
« on: February 05, 2007, 09:25:29 PM »
I got bored the other day and decided to have The $50 Robot battle Stampy.

The $50 Robot is hooked up with some basic remote control gear (Im not finished with his electronics yet), and Stampy is set as fully autonomous . . .

Obviously, The $50 Robot gets owned . . . but despite being ghetto it doesnt break!

Haha great video!

Right at the end, when you put the SoR website, it'd be nice to make the text clearer, maybe with a white border around the blue text?

i agree, it looks kinda bad. its an issue with googles video compression, as the original file looks perfectly fine . . . i cant make it look nicer unless i make the text bigger, cause my video making software doesnt allow text outlining :-\

That wasn't much of a contest.  You made the $50 robot look like a chicken, running away all the time!  I mean sure, chances are that Stampy would win anyway, but at least let the cheapo give it an honest go ;)

are you saying its possible to beat my stampy robot? ;)

hehe yea, i was hoping The $50 Robot would have a speed advantage . . . but the servos were a little slower, and the cardboard wheels had like no traction at all . . .

You should ditch the cardboard wheels, and use peanut butter jar lids, with wide eleastic bands wrapped around them...

After much thinking I have decided that the robot with the rubber wheels and metal scoop will defeat the plastic improvised robot. I must say that was one tough decision.
