The Blender from Richardson High School in Dallas, Texas won the 2007 BotsIQ competition.









Make sure to read the bottom of E2V2. In case you can't make it out, it says "If you can read this, we're screwed."
Talk about an action shot.

A big part of the competition is luck. The Blender is a fantastic bot, but so many bots in the high school competition are WEDGES! They were going to make san francisco mandatory active weapon, but repealed that for the high school division...

They shouldn't have. What's engineering a robot without innovation? I think it completely kills the meaning and purpose of Battle bots.

That's why we have to make sure the drum spinners and full body spinners own the competition.

In 07 (the year after E2V2 won) there were a lot of wedge robots because a wedge won the previous year. The next year, there were a lot of full body and drum spinners, and a few...interesting attempts at bar spinners, and that was simply because a full body spinner won the previous year. Hopefully we'll see some new concepts this year.

You're 100% correct. Our wedges are more imaginative than your spinners, ours has never been done before; your robots all pretty much have been done before, or at least, that type of robot has been done before.
