Well the Antimov has come and gone! We have to say, it was a pretty awesome time! We had 100+ spectators come out for an amazing day of robotics in the Boulder sunshine!
The competition started with a splash, as SparkFun's own Dia told the epic tale of her robot's (mis)adventures on the high seas. After setting a high bar, the competition only got better as pumpkins were smashed, legos were obliterated, and friendly ghosts were beaten to pieces by gangs of excited children (see pic above).
First place in the video category was Dennis Brunner and his Teddy Bear Birthday party. The robot is attempting to cut the birthday cake - and then things go horribly, horribly wrong. Awesome work!
Taking home first place in the live demonstration was the outstanding duo of Rebecca and Brian Brunner. You can check out their project in the above video! I think they got high marks in the "utter destruction" category!
Overall, we were psyched at how the competition unfolded, but we have to admit that we think this is only the tip of the iceberg! It was great to see so many of you out there and we hope you enjoyed the competition as much as we did!
