A new class of BattleBot Ã¢â¬â Altoids BattleBot
After watching BattleBots on youTube I thought there had to be an easy way of enjoying the same mindless destruction but on a scale that I can accommodate in my apartment. It would also have to be simple enough to build and wire up.
The Altoids BattleBot Class.
Take any Altoids tin and add to it a hard wire link from a controller to the BattleBot.
The controller can be another Altoids tin with a couple of switches and the battery pack.
Then add weapons to the unit that can comply to a maximum 300 gram weight limit (without hard wire and controller) with a size limit of no more than 30mm from the edge of the tin and an over all maximum height of 50mm.
To prevent a fire hazard (I was thinking of adding a zippo lighter), no batteries that either power the unit itself or weapons are to be placed in the BattleBot.
Ive got an idea of using a small solenoid to make a flipper of some sort that could turn an opponents Altoids BattleBot turtle.
Any other ideas for weapons?
