We've also been posted about on a few Mechwarrior fan websites, I'm going to go track them down and try to reel more people in.

That's good coverage! Grats!

Now you just need to get engadget or Make to pick it up. :)

That's cool, it gives a bit of publicity to try to recruit more people for the competition!

Can't wait!

I'm thinking the POV from the players should be recorded for each bout plus a sky cam.

I'm hoping to do exactly that actually. I've got a heavy duty dual Xeon workstation I'll be bringing down with me, and outfitting with multiple firewire video capture devices, so hopefully we'll have a feed from each POV cam as well as someone who can shoot each match with a camcorder. Skycam via RC blimp would be great too.

Sweeet! Dude I totally hope I can participate in this!
If nothing else, someone has to wear an 'Electricity Rocks!' t-shirt to the event.

I totaly understand you! I really want to be there but I don't know with the price of planes. Does anyone know when the games will be? Since I can't find it on the robogames site I guess it wasn't decided yet. I have school finals and prom night (that I can skip at worst :p ). Because it's sure my mom won't help me pay if it's just 2 days, maybe we'd visit some family in LA...

Hey Tyb -

I have some DVR cards from my last business. 4 camera, 8 camera, 16 camera - up to 480fps/card, onboard h.264 archiving on full 30fps/cam. :)
