Sir Golden-Tail 4.2
Well, this is Sir Golden-Tail. SIR Golden-Tail. Not Golden-Tail, or Sir Gold, Its SIR GOLDEN-TAIL!!!!
In fact, me and my friebd had a bet: If I placed seventh or highr (because we had never even placed before) in the robotics competition with it, he would call it Sir Golden-Tail. But, any lower, we had to promise to call it Golden-Butt.
But, we won second! Yay.
Well, Let me explain what I mean.
This robot started out like a funky-looking robot made from scraps. It got its name from the origional gold-colored strip of metal bent into a swirl to serve as the back wheel.
It must lift up coins, batteries, and balls and legos into a can in an obstical course. This is year two for us. The first robot was a VERY heavy monsterous robot, 30x30x20 cm. It had a giant robot-hand. The hand stunk. This one was Sir Golden-Tail3.5 (I have no photos, sorry).
The current version is 4.2. It has a bucket instead of a hand. It is much lighter and snazzier (???).
Here are the current features:
-One back wheel
-Pan to collect objects
-Vibrating motor to shake them off into the bucket
-Bristles to move around object
-"Panic Button" to violently shake the robot if anything gets stuck (may compromise structural integrity)
-Interesting lighting effect when arm is activated
-Funny victory music
-Neat-o paint job
