Knewt wins First Place

First and formost I'ld like to recognise Knewt's team members, Stuart Rolf and Bob Baxter for the fine work that made Knewt possible. We ran 3 motion routines on the parallax board that proved that the robot could move about and stand on one foot without falling down. The "not falling down" I think was the "clincher".

The Rally overall was a lot of fun, there was a fine array of robots present and I'm proud for Knewt to be recognized by such a prestegious group. Thank you AHRC for such a fine event.

This is a great project! Can you make Knewt bigger so it can take care of my ewok infestation? They're ruining the garden.

We actually do have plans to make a bigger version. See the Knossos project: http://knossosrobot.blogspot.com/
