Entry into the tournament will be R150 per team. Winners will walk away with Glory and Boasting rights, plus a few prizes of course.
This years event wont be as stringent as last year as we know the costs involved in building a robot can be expensive. Sizes of the robots can also vary, so we suggest the following dimensions:
Min: 15cm X 15cm X 10cm (Width X Breadth X Height )
Max: 50cm X 50cm X 40cm
We will do our best to place similar sized robots against each other.
Obviously, due to safety regulations, we cant allow the following Prohibited Weapons:
Spinning Weapons • Radio jamming • High voltage electric discharge • Liquids (glue, oil, water, corrosives…) • Open combustion (fire, explosives…) • Un-tethered projectiles • Lasers above 1 milliwatt • Visual obstruction • Halon- a specific fire extinguishing gas effective as a weapon in stopping internal combustion engines. Note that current rules do not specifically ban Halon as it is no longer commercially available.
