The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

The fact the robot resembled a zombie was its only real gameplay mechanism. Opposing drivers would quake in fear, right? Right? Uh… right?

Cad team: Zombie heads reduce the detection range of zombies by half, according to the wiki.
Programming team: It’s true, we just tested it.
Driver: WAIT THEY CAN SEE US JUST FINE FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FIELD! HELP!

I know my lunch is here, I put it in here.

The most intimidating defense bot of 2004.
I did my research on this.

[tsks disapprovingly]

That zombie head isn’t wearing safety glasses.

The pop-up head always gave robot inspectors a Jolt when they first saw it.

Wall-e, version 1

The judges at the 2004 Peachtree Regional gave this robot the Autodesk Visualization Award, not for its visual appearance, but for its vivid visual description of what it would do to the judges if it didn’t win the award.

The earliest known working prototype of the limelight vision system, known as Limelight-Z, was considered too unwieldy due to the requirement to be integrated with robot appendages and the various subroutines of dead code that would occasionally take over all robot functions leaving the drivers powerless to control the robot. But many feel that the real reason it didn’t catch on was due to the maniacal laughing noises it made just before the start of each match.

I swear obesiance to our robot masters.

The “latest and greatest” combat robot is ready for action.

Hold on - they put what in the kit of parts?

Robot was banned from competition because Heavy Metal was disallowed on robots.
