Robots that shoot other robots, and interns

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Now some of you may have heard of Mech Wars, which is a new robotic competition slated for debut at Robogames 2009. What you may not have heard, is that it’s being organized by a very sexy Yeti of a man named Andrew Alter (yours truely). My boss was bored today and decided to stop by my desk to see exactly what he pays me for, so we shot a quick video of the aforementioned Yeti explaining a bit about the Mech Wars competition and a Mech being built and sponsored by Trossen Robotics. “The Trossenator” is a Mech that can be piloted by members of the Trossen Robotics Community who are attending Robogames 2009, but do not have a Mech of their own to compete with. Think of it as a perk for those who help keep our community growing and always interesting.
