Novaone and I have had an idea about doing a swapshop at Robogames, Novaone has got a few bits such as a basic tilt sensor, RN Head, RN back cover (99% not modified) and some spare brackets. I have got some cable armour and a couple of spare arms for RN1, so if you are going to the games and have any spare bits why not bring them along?

Golly - not long to go. So much for all the mods that I was going to do. It is amazing how much time it takes to prepare for the competition (looks like there will be a few late nights ahead :shock: )

NovaOne - the steps look fabulous. Great job. Now I will need to find some books with similar dimensions to get some pratice in.

Working on my 3 metre dash. Have a technique that probably bends the rules a bit. But since there are no established rules - I will continue to refine the technique.

A friend of mine has just jetted over from the USA and will be joining me at robogames (Providing there is enough room in i-Bot's car :wink: ).

Thanks limor, and everyone that went to ROBOtic for a great day out.

Congratulations to BillB for winning Gold again.
Sonic - Your i-sobot is really cute!
i-bot your knowledge of the inner workings of RN is unparalleled!
Bren, I can't wait to see your home build, (I'm not pulling your leg).
Peter good luck sorting out your manoi, I think it will be a good match for BillB at the next event.

I'm not ungrateful, but now I come to think about it, shouldn't I have been disqualified for cartwheeling in a running race. I must have a nasty competitive streak :? (It was all just a blur , all i could see were those RED finish line digits :x)
So much for the compass module. I might have done better using it :roll:

Fabulous time was had by all. It was great to see so many different types of Humanoids some with very interesting hacks.

It is always great to meet up with fellow roboteers and share ideas. As with last time it has given my so, so many ideas for improvements and further hacks to improve the robot.

A good day was had by all. Have a few photos of the days events. Photo of the winners from left to right are sonic, (not sure?), billb, robo1, orac, novaone and ibot.

Image

billb first, novaone second and sonic third.

Image

Picture of third place winner, sonic's i-sobot (possibly the first contest this little robot has won). He gave a good run for the money, steady and in quite a straight line.

Image

A picture of ibot's novaone with all his mods.

I would like to thank ibot for the lift to the games.

I have got a short video of novaone's stair climb which i will post shortly, i found this extemely interesting.[/list]

Easy robot competition for UK robots!

hi all,

I'm sorry I missed your second event - I was hoping to attend. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the 3rd!

In the mean time, Microsoft UK have organised a fun robot competition for robot owners or robot dreamers. Robot Idol is the opportunity to publish a pic and the special features of your robot. These are then voted on and the winner gets £500 credit to spend at nominated online web stores.
If you're still a robot dreamer, then submit your Robot blueprint as a text description or a jpeg drawing. A panel of judges will award the most ingenius blueprint £250 credit to spend at nominated online web stores.

Take a look at http://iloverobots.wotudo.net to see your competition and vote. Then prep your best pic and get it submited.

Best of luck
Paul

I should have also mentioned one of my robot projects finally got published this week!!

Over the summer I have been working with Future Publishing on a Robotics supplement for the UK issue PC Plus Jan 2008. It is in the shops from the 18th Dec. (WH Smith)

My 914 PC Bot -A1DW- is on the cover :-). There are some great articles on robot development and plenty of practicals if you fancy doing some Microsoft Robotics Studio stuff (there are some KHR-1 services in the download)!

check it out!

Hi, picked this up today, very nice, take me a while to read through it all though.

What really made my jaw drop was that right next to it on the shelf of my local small English town newsagents was a stack of "Robot magazine" next to the RC moddeling mags.

I don't need to import these anymore, I can buy them off the shelf for £3.50

:D
