Sumobot Competition Site

March 14th, 2011 Comments off

The sumobot site for the April 16th competition is now up and running.  This is still considered alpha but it stable enough (hopefully) to have contenders start logging in and creating accounts for their hackerspace and sumobots.  Suggestions are welcome and the full source code to the website is available via github.

Please keep in mind there are still lots more features planned for the site and a lot of the style-sheet stuff is not done yet.  There is a flickr feed on the main page.  If you are working on anything sumobot releated for this competition please upload your pictures to a flickr account and tag it with “sumo13″.  They will then automatically appear on the home screen of the site.

Sumobot Prizes

March 3rd, 2011 Comments off

Our sumobot competition is scheduled for April 16th and the time is getting closer.  If you haven’t bought parts for your bot yet you should definitely stop slacking and get to it!  I would like to announce two prizes for the competition.  One is from parallax and is a complete sumobot kit.  It comes with two sumobots, a ring and a bunch of other great stuff!  Next we have a VIP ticket for Daycon Security Summit on Oct 7th & 8th.

Stay tuned for more updates.  We have a custom website where you will be able to register as a contender, submit your bot and also check the scores of the competition :D

For now, check the wiki for more information: http://wiki.hive13.org/Sumo_Competition
