CHIBOTS MEETING: NOVEMBER 12, 2000
ChiBots, Chicago Area Robotics Group, met at the Schaumburg Public Library.
Last month, Tom brought a pair of gearhead motors that went unclaimed. They were in demand this meeting and so went to the earlier arrivers, Leon and Brian.
Tom lavished the group with more prizes. An aluminum robot platform for everyone!
David showed a portion of his video from the CIRC Sumo Competition and Tom showed some of the Dallas Personal Robotics Group RoboRama 2000. Notice the aluminum robot platforms on the table?
Exhibition Sumo Matches
Earlier in the meeting, David described the CIRC Sumo event and showed CIRC's printed program, t-shirts, and prizes.
Paul brought his Sumo ring and his son's robot, Intruder. Intruder battled Pound Of Wood and Leon's Legos. Then sparred with Bugdozer a bit!
