You can’t trust the new guy - I told him not to activate this robot before I got the ear attached!

It may have cost him a horn from his helmet, but that’s one less engineer coming in and demanding a prototype “yesterday”. Now, where was he in the parts count?

“…if you’re the lucky person that minute, you’ll win a $100 gift code.”
Hmmm, $200,000 with one lucky person winning $100 each minute = 33 1/3 hours…
So, “Free 1.388 Days” ??

What happened to the egg?

The Antimov contest is intended to go against the typical robot contest where a single robot fights a problem, wins, and survives. Instead, a single robot fails and self-destructs.
That’s not quite the opposite: how about multiple robots that get in each others' way, fail and self-destruct (think Keystone Kops).
For example, consider a group of cardboard-box fire-fighting robots, each equipped with an aerosol hair-spray can, gathered around a lit candle. Individuals could provide more than one robot, or multiple contestants could join in a melee or “last man burning” round.
Also, the victory shouldn’t always go to the strongest;
extra points should be awarded for using rubber-band motors or candle-powered steam engines (a steam-punk robot contest?)
No public wish lists :(
