    Turn Your Robot Into $600k!

    Apparently, Singapore is looking for the "best street-fighting robowarrior" and the government is willing to pay over $600,000 for it. Who says that building robots doesn't pay (except for my fiance)?

    Seems like a ridiculously low sum of money for a robot that can do all that. It seems like the bot will cost a lot more.

    From waht I understand it has to be pretty big to climb up normal stairs!

    Note the date: that story was posted in 2007.

    The competition happened in 2008. Nobody completed the challenge (big surprise). http://www.dsta.gov.sg/index.php/TechX-Challenge
