The event may be virtual, but the robots are still very much real, as typified by this effort from Paul Fretwell. Paul has eschewed the many robot kits on the market in favour of designing his own 3D-printed body including many clever features, and 3D-printed mounting brackets for the motors he’s used. It’s fast, it’s four-wheel drive, and we can’t wait to see it in real life.
We’re all missing face-to-face events (though hopefully not for too much longer). In the meantime, a lot of the things that we would normally look forward to – such as Maker Faires, local hackspace events, and big Hackster conferences – have been forced to go virtual. One of these is Pi Wars.
