I compete almost every year at Robot Battles, one of the oldest robotic competitions in the world. This year I built a brand new robot, “Big Blue Saw Presents Flipper 720”. As part of the build process, I decided to post, in real-time, the process of turning a big pile of parts into a working robot. It took nearly 3 days of work.
The original information was posted to a popular social network message board, one which doesn’t really support easy exporting. At the suggestion of one group member, I decided later to re-post to my blog. So I had to a bit of scraping and re-formatting to get it here. My apologies for any mistakes in the formatting.
Robot Battles prep. Stuff temporarily tacked together.
