We're excited to announce the winners of the SparkFun Actobotics Stairclimber Challenge!
Back at the end of January, we announced the Actobotics Stairclimber Challenge. We received a bunch of great entries, but ultimately had to pick a select few to take home the loot. Here they are, in all their glory!
Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to the winners -- and great work on the 'bots!
That place is dangerous, i get too much when I go there
I like the simplicity of Robert Paradiso's. It also looks like what I imagine a legless android zombie would look like trying to get up the stairs (possibly to eat your computer's processor).
Good job everyone!
I like the design of Pokey, but why is it so slow?
I think the stair bear is great and absolutely deserved the win (atleast out of the 4 posted). I love the custom wheels cut out of foam for climbing the stairs: simple and effective. Great idea and well executed. I also enjoyed Robert Paradiso's bot. Keep it simple, I love it.
Congratz to the winners! I hope vNext of this competition is not during the FIRST FRC robotics season, and I'll put in a submission.
Great job on behalf of the contestants!
How many entries were there?
Pokey is fantastic. Nice work!
2 points for mentioning American Science and Surplus. :)
