And after the battle is over, you get to take your robot home with you!
Creativity is actively encouraged! Control your bot from your cellphone! Create a hammer-like weapon out of popsicle sticks! If you can think it up, try to do it!
What is included in my ticket?
A brand new Arduino Uno, a SumoBot chassis, batteries, and all other parts needed to build your fully functional robot, plus lunch!
What is a NodeBot? What is a SumoBot?
A SumoBot is a NodeBot specifically designed to push other NodeBots out of the designated Sumo ring by any means necessary!
Is this a Hackathon?
Nope! While we will declare a winner of the Sumo Ring, you're only prize will be celebrating your victory over the other bots.
Spectacular failure is also celebrated and encouraged!
Do I have to have any experience with robots or hardware?
Can my child attend?
Well behaved kids are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a parental guardian for the duration of the event. Parental Guardians must purchase a meal ticket.
What do I need to bring with me?
A functional laptop with NodeJS pre-installed. Please refer to the NodeJS installation instructions if you need further information.
