National Robotics Week is April 5-13 and we want to see the robots our community is building!
In between not harming humans, obeying humans, and protecting their own existence, robots do a lot of cool stuff. Rosie was known for her shark-like canasta skills, and C3PO could paint a mean landscape.
Show us what your robot can do (and how you built it, of course) to win prizes like Oscilliscopes, RC Helicopters, and Raspberry Pis.
Please be sure that your entry into the contest contains original photos and text. Entries without original photos and text will be denied.
Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), March 17, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, May 12, 2014.
The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.
