Robot History Edit


Flea fails

Flea fails to jump

The Flea used a mousetrap like device where the robot would get a good run and as the wheels tighten on the way it would release this quick spring mechanism that would fling the robot through the air. Flea was given a wooden ramp for its turn. It sped up to speed and drove all the way, failing to spring its mechanism which caused it to run straight off of the ramp gaining no ground. It came last in the competition with Fleabot winning Gold and Frog of Darkness gaining a better distance to The Flea but no victory.
