I was at the Ra’anana park this morning for the Robots Exhibition from the students of Aviv Highschool.
I was hoping to for some Robot Wars style action but the competition turned out to be in basketball – two competing robots are supposed to be able to lift a big heavy ball and put it in a “basket” (which is still pretty cool).
One of the students explained that these were the regional finals in a world-wide competition whose finals will be held at Atlanta later on this year. Can anyone post a link to this competition’s homepage?
( I wonder how the same kind of event looks like at Singapore or Japan )
Anyway, I’m pretty sure that the guys from Aviv school as the competing robot pretty much died at some point. Wish them good luck in getting to Atlanta…
There should be an Israeli Robot Wars… That’ll be cool…
