StrongBad Our trip to RoboMaxx was great fun, and StrongBad did it again, winning first place in the Advanced Mini-Sumo competition! The GM6 gear motors did their job, rarely failing to give StrongBad the ability to power opponents out of the ring.

We also entered our Sumovore Sumo robot kit (officially available in a day or so), but after winning several matches, it had to go head-to-head with the 4WD StrongBad and lose. Still, our initial showing of the Sumovore went quite well.

It was good to see face-to-face a good many BEAM roboticists, and see what new innovations are coming out of the hobby robotics community. We're working on a gallery of pictures, so stay tuned...

This seems like a GREAT idea for extra-terrestrial planet-surface locomotion. Check out […]

New Products: All-Seeing Eye, LCDs

A while ago we showed off the prototype/demo for the All-Seeing Eye, and from the positive response it got we decided to bring it back as An Actual Thing. We even mounted it to a DragonTail, and let it go for a spin around the office. Check it out: We briefly toyed with the idea […]
