Re: Robot Wars TV Series 2016 BBC 2

A thought actually, who else is planning for a second series? It must surely be all but inevitable given the positive reception (assuming the next five Sundays aren't Dara O Briain strangling kittens for an hour) and I know I for one am kickstarting my ongoing bigger weight class efforts with half ...

If you get a bunch of enthusiastic people together they might give you a budget to start a team :) Formula Student at Sheffield goes back quite a few years before I joined so I'm not sure how it all started. The whole endeavor is IMechE run though and Reading is more famous for it's electronic engin...

Re: Jon's Cheerful Robots

Hey all, Just wanted to put a label on my slight disappearance from robots of late. I see Scott is taking a break and I may have to mirror him for the moment. This is not due to to any lack of enthusiasm for the sport on my part but I haven't been able to balance my degree and my hobbies as well as ...

Re: Antweight robot max 1,5 cm height
