BattleBricks: Autonomous Battle

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

We held an arena battle a couple of weeks ago, with four entrants. David Kincade fielded his first robot, and I finally got to build my ultimate spinner bot. Spintaho’s main weapon is driven by six lego motors, and it uses the NXT to drive and detect other robots. This is my first robot that uses two RCX’s and one NXT brick. Check out the pictures here, and the video here.
