$50 Robot Challenge!
Were going to try a buildup of small robot challenges using a '$50 Club
Robot'. The idea is to do some regular small events using a
simple common platform. The robots will probably cost more
than $50 after a lot of little events have been done with them.
The idea is to start quick and dirty with a mostly common
platform design for a group of folks. Set a challenge idea up
every few meetings and see if the robots can be doing something
interesting within a fairly short turnaround.
