This evening saw 'Infernal Contraption', the Imperial College robot, star in a University Challenge episode of Robot Wars on BBC Choice.
That's not on my channel list I only have 5...
but Southside has it :-) even if the chairs aren't exactly 'comfortable'
I would have watched it but no one told me :(
"At some point the Imperial robot?s weapon seemed to lose any energy it might once have had" - That was because the link in the chain that drove the disc fell out of it's own accord.
We have now replaced the chain with a V-Belt which won't suffer from this problem and is also lighter, which will enable us to make improvements elsewhere on the robot due to the weight saving.
"I would have watched it but no one told me :(" - don't worry, it'll be on 'proper' TV at some point, and we'll let people know when that's on....
We let the press office sort out our branding, which they did at very short notice.
The episode will be on BBC2 in "late spring".
I haven't seen the program yet, but we did have major control issues, which was the main cause of our wandering.
We knocked the removable link out of Sgt bash, but I bet they edited that out. I'll have to have a word with my agent, such insubordination is not acceptable.
