The robot race mentioned in my last post was featured in the Birmingham Post and the Birmingham Mail yesterday. The Birmingham Mail has a couple of pictures of me looking like a goon cheering on the robot in the semi-final.
It's not very clear in this bad copy, but that's a nice clean head on picture of the HD DVD crack code published in a Birmingham newspaper. Mission accomplished 🙂
I've uploaded a grainy video of the final moment of that race, when our (much slower but more reliable) robot crawls past the opponent which keeps going round in circles with a burnt out motor.
There's also a video of the robot completing a full lap, note the lecturer towards the end asking what the number on the front of the robot is and us trying to claim that it's just a random number.
