RIBOtic Winter 2007

Although not open to the public, the first ever RIBOtic has taken place at RIBO Labs deep in the Northen Wisconsin forests.

Justin’s robots and my robots fought it out from Friday November 28 to Saturday December 1st.

Justin finaly got his first robot (Lego Mindstorms NXT) after seeing how much fun we had at iHobby Expo 2007.

We first had the Lego Sumo battles. Which with my robots motors at 40% could win. While up here Justin fixed some of his programs which aloud for some cool random movements!

After the sumo robots battled it out, I saw the little Lego heli blades in my collection of parts and said “I wonder if we could make it fly…” After 6 – 8 hours of work, and some of Justin’s and my ideas, we got it to fly! Not the best flyer in the world, but with a hard crank it would lift up 3 feet!

The next day we worked on a LEGO(r) rock crawler, based on a quick through together one that I built 4 days earlyer.
