TK:
Will it make good protection in the sumo events and bot battles

Admin:
styrofoam sheds when stuff cuts it . . . and i dont believe robots are allowed in these competitions to shed . . .

some foams are really hard . . . but it all depends on what kind of weapons you want to protect against. foam will stop blunt weapons, but nothing sharp . . .

Hal9000:
If you coat the styrofoam in a harder substance, then surely it wouldn't shed unless there were very large forces ripping it apart.

Sounds like a good idea, actually :)
