Come hack with us at Protospace’s Tuesday night Meet and Geek tonight and for the price of admission to the Robot Games ($40) you could find yourself going home with a robot ready for the May 11th competition! We’ll be doing 2 building sessions at the same time, some will be outfitting Roombas with a new battery, an Arduino, & Din connector to compete in a timed obstacle course and others will be re-purposing RC Trucks to compete in a no-holds-barred race across an outdoor landscape to make it from point A to B without getting stuck. Find Jim and Mark at Protospace to get you setup and ready to compete. And as a Bonus if you spend $40 (or more) tonight your entry fee to the robots games will be covered!
