This is from the Thursday night build session. Our first attempt at 360 VR recording one of our meetings.
Lucy, one of our younger members has created a robot that is controlled by thought over the internet! Check out this video of the robot in action. She also has a web site up with more info.
We received a good offer for the domain name robomo.com from a robotics company with a similar name. On Saturday, Robomo unanimously voted to accept the offer.
Our new domain is robomo.club for now
Tonight was an amazing turnout for the Robomo First Friday Line Following Competition!!!
We had 28 entries! That’s a new record of participation for any Robomo event!
And lastly, we need to send a giant congrats to Mark the builder of the robot named “Mark2” which was the winning entry!
His winning run time was 19 seconds!!!
To remind everyone, each touch of the robot was a 3 second time penalty, and any kit robot entry got an additional 10 second penalty for not being homemade.
