Mighty Morphin Rayered-X
Rayered-X (pronounced Layered-X) is an innovative robot with four extremeties – each consisting of seven servos – that give it 28 degrees of freedom. It sports a custom aluminum frame, is 50 cm tall and weighs around 8 pounds. Unfortunately, it only placed 24th during the “Demonstration” phase of the Robo-One competition.
“At first it looks like a short tower, then becomes a carousel, then a walking spider, then into a tall biped battle robot. It can even transform an arm into a new leg and keep on fighting.”
Knife Blade Robot
This interesting robot — from Robo-One 9 — is equipped with two knife blades. Unfortunately, it’s not battling against a comparable bot — what a match it would’ve been.
“Still, it’s not that unusual to find a Robo-One robot equipped with a couple of knife blades that scaled up to life size would be close to samurai sword length.”
