Let me tell you a story. Once, in a time not too long ago, a scientist by the name of Frankenstein (http://www.amazon.com/Frankenstein-ebook/dp/B000JQUZCI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1340407115&sr=8-2&keywords=frankenstein) decided to create life. He worked tirelessly on this creation, day and night, rain and shine. Throughout the process he pondered the ethics of his project (http://www.amazon.com/Frankenstein-ebook/dp/B000JQUZCI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1340407115&sr=8-2&keywords=frankenstein), but he plowed on. Before too long, Frankenstein finished. His creation was complete. A hideous beast, with bits and pieces of flesh, organs, and bones from other deceased creatures. Before Frankenstein could see if his creation actually took on life, he ran, screaming "I created a monster!"

The monster rose off the table. It looked around. It examined its hands and feet, arms and legs, but it detested what it saw. With a surge of inherent rage, the monster leapt off the construction table, on the hunt for one man: Frankenstein. He would continue this chase throughout every continent on the globe. Ultimately, the monster caught Frankenstein in the arctic. But, here is where the story ends differently than the cherished horror classic (http://www.amazon.com/Frankenstein-ebook/dp/B000JQUZCI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1340407115&sr=8-2&keywords=frankenstein). Frankenstein got away from the monster...to this day, the monster continues to chase after Frankenstein, destroying everything in his path. Year after year of this eternal chase, the monster grew smarter and smarter. He learned to adapt and change to blend into his surroundings to better reach his human prey.

Meet Frankenbot




Today, the monster has completely transformed himself. The monster has taken on Frankenstein's name as his own. And now, Frankenstein searches the globe as...a robot...searching for his infamous creator. Even as a robot though, Frankenstein leaves destruction in his wake.

And so, robots in the 20lb class of the Critter Crunch (http://www.milehicon.org/Default.aspx) competition, be terrified, be very terrified. Frankenstein will be there, destroying anything that gets in his way. The tale continues on myjourneyintosuccess.blogspot.com (http://myjourneyintosuccess.blogspot.com)
