    Contest: Junkbot 2...

    OK...In light of the downturned economy we will be having a new Junkbot Challenge.

    1) Participants can spend no more than $100 on new parts. (document your spending Bonus points for spending the least.)
    2) No more than 20 percent of the robot by weight can come from a kit.
    3) The robot has to be eligible for at least one event at robogames 2009. Bonus for being able to enter it in more than one event.

    Robots must be posted by midnight pacific time christmas eve.

    Winner gets half of their robot up to $50 cash from me, and a drink at robogames 2009 (if they are 21 or older) if they actually win one of the events their junkbot is entered in...ok they don't have to win I'll probably get them a drink anyway.

    So go be cheap!

    void where prohibited.

    DB

    Participants thus far:

    Darkback2 (charlie)
    Rudolph (kidbot)
    4mem8 (skitterbot)
    Body Worn Controller Thingy
    Dance Dance Revolution
    Milk Carton Space Bot

    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.

    I want a free beer pass...I'm not sure that your qualified...as in possibly disqualified...depends on if the stuff was laying around at work...or at home. Also...the judges will have to decide if SES counts as a kit.

    Tyberious,

    I don't want you to think you are inelligeble...just you have to play by the same rules as everyone else. Your closet is a bit more well stocked than the average bear's. That said, $100 is a huge limit. You can do a lot on ebay for $100...especially with your employee discount.

    DB

    Oh...and as a shout out too all of you Noobies, The last person who won this competition made a walker using plastic forks, and it was his first robot! Anyone can do this...just be creative!

    Okay, RoyBot technically cost me $6.96 in parts I didn't have laying around

    Don't worry...seeing that someone else posted to this thread is like getting a birthday present. I think next round as in January will be everyone against you...and the limit for us will be 1 million dollars and you have to build your robot blind folded with one hand behind your back. Oh...and I had to look up PITA on google.
