We put our skills to the test...with decidedly mixed results.
In today's episode of Robotics 101, we put our rapid prototyping skills to the test in the Actobotics Challenge! The challenge worked like this - three SparkFun employees had an hour to build a robot/device that could put a ping pong ball in a cup placed 8 feet away using only parts from our Actobotics line. Our competitors took three very different approaches. Check it out:
As you can see, it was harder than we thought! What would you have tried? Let us know in the comments below. Remember, you would only have an hour to design, build and test your robot/device.
