And the DART Ant Weight Winner is…Babe The Blue Bot!!! (Video)
When I receive each issue of Servo Magazine, I first go to the “Combat Zone” section by Kevin Berry. When I got my February 2007 issue, it was no exception. This time, with Kevin just talking about Babe The Blue Bot on Robot Magazine’s forums, it really stood out when I saw that Babe The Blue Bot won at DART (Daytona Area Robot Tournament). He posted some pictures and said how he made motor mounts cheaply with hand tools and handcut Kevlar honeycomb armor. Kevin lives in Florida (FL) USA and works for NASA and has been in every space shuttle–past and present–working on cameras, beams, etc.!
Babe The Blue Bot is the low pushy bot in the video.
