FRAGILE (pronounced Frah-Gee-lay) is ready for battle at mHub for their Hebocon (crappy robot) battle today! This wind-up robot, with its 4-seconds of forward movement and powerful battering-ram scooper, is part of the Micro-hebocon Passive Agressive Robot series*; fighting machines that strive to be strategically pushed to the side and let powerful competitors storm out of the ring, and thus lose the match.
In a supreme act of crappiness, since I have family in town and can only attend for 2 hours, I will be seeing if I can give the robot away to someone in the crowd who can compete for me. I do not need the robot back since the cost per robot is only $3 (a wind- motor and 3D printer filament).
*a hybrid with the Fragile Paper Robot series, which is expert at adhering to the ground after moving just far enough to be legal. See also Collapsing Robot series.
