Hey Bruce, are you up to a challenge?

Sunday, March 18th, 2007
Hey Bruce, now that you've purchased your own MindStorms kit, it's time to start thinking about competitions. After all, you won't know what your robot's worth until it's in the ring, fighting for survival.

Tonight, our team made a video of our second sumo practice for an upcoming competition. Yesterday's robots were pretty weak,  but after a lesson on gear reduction, torque and drive trains, I sent the kids off to redesign their robots.

Bruce, when you come to visit me in the digital sandbox, bring your MindStorms kit and we'll have some fun. Perhaps we can write an extension to the Notes API to manage our robots from LotusScript and hve them respond to the status of our programs. Interesting idea...
