    Fun Competition

    Ok, Here is a neat competition for members of TRC and R/C [robot Community] I propose to build a robot based on a TV/Film, It will start on October 1st with two photo's and every one-two weeks [Time permitting] two more photo's until The correct name of the robot, TV/Film title and year it was made, The first person to correctly name these will win an Electronic component pack from me. You are allowed 10 tries at this and if you do not get it correct within these 10 tries your out of the running. You need to register your online name here so I can see who is entering, Please enter your subject line as "CONTEST ANSWER". Entries must reply via PM and not by posting, If caught posting your answer here you will not win the prize and I'll ask the moderators to remove your post. Admin are also allowed to enter. This may be a quick competition or it may drag out, Of course you can have guess's, but you will use up your 10 tries sooner.
    You also may ask questions [ Which I will answer here] but then again I may, or may not answer them or give you a misdirected answer so beware. GWJax and Tyberius are not allowed to enter this competition as I have mentioned to them over the months what robot I will build next, Sorry guys. You may have forgotten, but I have mentioned it to you both. I will put up a reminder on the 31st September. Oh I forgot to mention, The forum section that this is under could be misleading as to what the robot is, Also I will be adding some part in the photo's that I post that has nothing to do with my project, and If by chance you can identify that part that it does not belong in my project there will be another prize for that, something not related to robots or electronics. Ha ha, Good luck.
    Footnote, This robot is quite elusive as far as photo's go, I have a total of 9 photo's, I may have to do a video capture of it to get more photo's.

    Also at [Robo community] GWJax is also running a competition of a similar manner with prizes. It was his idea to have the ten attempts so as to stop to many guess's. You can also enter this one as well, GWJax's robot is quite unique, I am also helping GW to judge this so I will not be entering His competition.

    So, Anyone interested in this competition!! if so put your name down here to be in, does not cost you anything and you do not have to build anything.
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.

    No milw My contest is complety diffrent than his and mine does not have a theme like 4mem8 has, my robot is something no one has ever made before in the sence like what I'm making, but if you have the copies of "The Boy Mechanic" volumes then you can find a version of it, but thats all I'll tell you. hehehe but then again am I telling the truth. I have no idea but 4mem8 does.
