Merrick's IRL Designs
« on: February 12, 2013, 09:36:11 PM »
Ok, I finally took the hint and made a showcase to get some feedback on some robots I built to feature in the potential Robot Wars style display tournament explained in https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php/topic,13058.0.html <<<<< that thread.

Here's a selection of ones I've built that I want to include. Be warned, it's in a spoiler because there's a lot of images.



I realise I seem to have a little bit of a thing for that chevron stripe. I'll make amends at some point to change it.

Anything you like? Any suggestions for styles of robot you want to see built for the tournament?

Many thanks. :)

some of them are quite nice, particularly the second from the bottom

you can always look at other people's bots and take some ideas from them. also having some supports on extenders/motors (especially on the second bot) makes them look more realistic

is this bot don't lost all razors in a fight before do a damage thought

I've seen a lot worse from a kick off. Pretty good all round I think.

the first one is weird as heck, i think you just made some new kind of bot type
How you make Alarm Clock Pizza is:
Step 1: You buy an alarm clock from the store, and then you have to break it and put it in the sauce.
Step 2: Fold the sauce in 5 slices and put it in the dough.
Step 3: Paint the eggs with a pitcher of a clock showing what time you want to wake up and eat pizza for breakfast.
Step 4: Put the eggs in the dough.
Step 5: Make it flat into a round shape and draw the time you want on it.
Step 6: Put some old steel to prevent other peple from stealing it.
Step 7: Make it flat and cut into 60 slices 1 for each minute in 1 our.
Step 8: Put in the oven set the timer to 30048813.2884 seconds and put the temperature on 'Volcano' setting.
Step 9: If you think it is take to long, then get yor alarm clock and set it to now so that it will ring and you can take it out.
Step 10: Take it out uv the uvin wen it is redy and go to bed. In the morning eat pizza and also eat yor hands bi mistake.

It was supposed to be a drill attached to a self-righting lifting arm. Kinda like Ming Dienasty.

The second bot looks nice, and the fourth one is pretty cool. Not really a fan of the rest.

I'm still around, just not really posting. I haven't built anything I think is worthy of uploading and real life is getting in the way of actually putting together this display tournament.

And now for something unoriginal.



And every robot tournament needs a joke entry or two.
