How I Spend my Thursdays

Last night I went to see Pixar's "Up" in theaters with my friend, Allyssa (The movie was absolutely wonderful!). Today, I relax by myself and do what I normally do: build robots.

Yes, today I spent (wasted) my time building yet another Battlebot per the Robot Fighting League (RFL). This particular robot, is a beetleweight (3 pounds) and sports a large spinning disk that spins ~10,000 rotations per minute (RPMs). What makes this robot particularly interesting is the fact that I am using all my spare parts and spare materials. It will certainly make for an interesting design because it pretty much forces me to design in reverse to what I typically do.

Anyway, I got the frame mostly complete. I'm not particularly satisfied because I usually design frames in more efficient pieces, but...

Introducing the robot whimsically named... "Late Night Leftovers"
