I see many Lego bots in the arena. Too bad! I hope Lego didn’t beat you.

I see that this competition uses “relaxed” rules for the size, where the “original” Mini Sumo rules allow a max. width and length of 10 cm only. I do know that a few cm makes a lot of a difference here! At the convention 2010 in Erbes-Büdesheim I showed two mini sumo bots built almost completely out of fischertechnik. The oldest one had it’s own electronics, while at that time the smallest interrface was way too big; and the new one has a non-ft battery only. There’s some pictures of these Earlier pictures can be found here:

Rob=> None of the LEGO bots defeated the ft bot! We lost only to the homemade bot using a Parallax board. (We won the first heat, stalemated the second, and then lost the next two). Paul =>Thanks for sharing! Yes, the Discovery Center used relaxed rules. We could have built to a smaller footprint, but 15 cm was fun!
