My name is Randy and I am a Community Manager in these here parts. In a previous life I had founded and run the Instructables Design Studio (RIP) @ Autodesk's Pier 9 Technology Center. I'm also the author of the books 'Simple Bots,' and '62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer'. I enjoy rideable robots, kaleidoscopes, microphotography, afternoon constitutionals, and baking. Subscribing to me = fun and excitement!

  • I'm not sure we would do this because there are so many contests that we are currently planning to run that you could potentially enter hacked devices into.

    I'd like to do a soft robotics contest, but I am not sure it would get enough participation. Would anyone else out there want to participate in this?

    In an ideal world, would you want to compete against other students in other schools or have your students compete against each other?How many students do you typically teach each year?

    A precision contest could be fun, but I worry it would be hard for us to evaluate entries and judge.
