Battlebots Las Vegas pictures
This robot has a powerful
pneumatic ram driving a spike weapon . It punched 3 nice holes in the steel
body of S.L.A.M at the first Battlebots held in Long Beach.
Rhino is a screwed together aluminum
box construction. These type of robots are some of the strongest around.
Can you say a tough nut to crack?
This robot is a tank type design
the treads were custom made using a CNC machine. It shows a high degree
of skill in assembly and design. The lance weapon can be raised and lowered
using a linear actuator
Recent upgrades to the blades put
us in the Super heavyweight class.
S.L.A.M also had chain weapons
added which makes it about 8 feet wide when rotating. It's very scarey
to stand next to when running.
This robot is very interesting
to watch because it doe's so many things. The top rotates independent of
Tazbot also has a powerful lifting
arm and a blade type weapon on it's tail. Definitely a nice piece of work.
Stephen Felk built this robot in
his one bedroom apartment He told me that he hand drilled and tapped over
1000 screw holes to build it.
Voltarc is a wedge design with
a very powerful lifting arm in the center.
I've seen this robot carry two
other heavyweight robots at the same time.
