Hey is anyone going to enter?
Robot contest.
So far there isn't any competition; any one of our projects would be a winner.

Funny enough, DJ and I both won prizes in an Instructables Robot contest a few years ago:)

I think that there was enough prizes that everyone who entered got something, it was pretty sweet, I think I received a book and an Instructables T-Shirt.

Edit - Found the link in the archives
@skater Very fun little fridge climbing bot project! and as long as he doesn't jump in when the fridge door is open! Does the little bug still exist and has it been modified since?
@irobot58 Well the little guy does still exist but I stole his servos for the EZ-mini project I had where I placed an EZ-mini robot on a white board with a whiteboard marker attached to it so it could draw while driving sideways:)
Well, I was just accepted into the contest. I also got a message that my B9 Robot was chosen to be a Feature Project in the Technology section. They say that's good thing. I'm honored. :)
Well deserved!....but really...... it should be entered in the Space probe section.... :) I am working like mad crazy on my recycled slap it together bot:) (Thanks for the inspiration Dave....AND......@Troy:) )
Good luck on your entry Glen! I will vote for yours if you vote for mine, haha
Already voted ..in a heart beat or is that a ping!:)
Good luck to you both!
Thanks Troy , but really for me its more of a dead line thing then any recognition or prize:) to enter. Hopefully you have been getting some good productive hours in with your project!
Not so much on mine. I updated my thread so I don't hijack this one.:)
Thank you Troy and thank you Dave S! I have entered the Instructables Robot contest......Here's the link please check it out for any errors or faux pas!:D
FRED and Instructables

I am sure I will "enjoy" many edits to the entry....:) I think I am the 35 entry . At the moment its being "considered" for publishing/entering. It is not fully complete by any means but there's still 5 weeks left to get in a video!
No problem.:D
I really want to see one of our community members win this! Good luck all!
I was going to rush to get mine finished in time to enter but since i won't have an EZ-B in time i guess I'll have to wait till next year if they make it annual. someone from this community should absolutely win.. our bots are the best hands down.
I know instruct ables like simple stuff so maybe I could do squeegee.
FRED is posted! Instructables have accepted my entry at this link
EZ-Robot controlled Steampunk demiDroid

That now makes 2 EZ-Robot entries ....16 more and EZ-Robot will sweep the podium:)
@Kullthulu...I am sorry your bot is without an EZ-B *stress* ! and unable to make a contest entry...Have you posted any progress pics? Forgive me if you have....
I saw it and voted! Nice, I love the eyes and the Jewels Vern time machine twist.
Thanks Dave! The Time machine is not quite done yet, I am still making the "book" which will have a compartment for a slide out cd player to hold a mirror or anything else.
Very old school with the wood and metal - awesome steampunk look! Now there are 3 of us in this, my EZ-Face they finally allowed in after 3 tries! :D
Good Luck to all of you. I won't enter at this time because Sunshine is still paraplegic. But, good luck to you guys!
