1st Place, Heavy Weight Division

 

We were going up against a spinner so we created an arm that attached to the

front of the robot that would keep the spinner blades from getting near enough

to MIDEVIL to do damage. That put us over our weight limit, however. Since none

of the mechanical parts are negotiable, the only way to reduce the weight was to

reconfigure the LEXANŽ case, leaving the back wheels vulnerable.

 

Have you noticed that people interacting with MIDEVIL are always bending over

or stooping? The smaller robots can be picked up and put on a table to work on.

The weight for MIDEVIL has always made that impossible and it's taking a toll

on Ray's back.
