Re: The fastest way to get over the hump...

Such a cool robot. I want one.

I think 86 should bring back their 2010 bot.

Re: The fastest way to get over the hump...

I love the little popping noise it makes when it jumps. It's the little things that keep me entertained...now to figure out how to design and build one of those for our robot before tuesday night...

Re: The fastest way to get over the hump...

Too bad the minibot had to be physically touching the pole in order to win the race. Would have been nice to just build a small platform on the robot for ours to leap from...

Re: The fastest way to get over the hump...

Does anyone know what that bot uses to jump like that? I think it's some sort of linear actuator (probably a solenoid), but does anyone know for sure?

If you look at the first few seconds of the video, you can see what looks to be a rubber knob, so you're right that it's most likely a solenoid. Plus when it's in mid air, you can hear a slight 'click' sound, which is when it retracts.

As to how it all works together, I have my guesses, but nothing actual.

I heard it uses a CO2 cartridge.

It's a pressurized CO2 powered cylinder.

Yeah, it's supposed to get about 25 jumps before needing a new cartridge.
