This Saturday, we are hosting an event in celebration of International Nodebot day.

We will be building little sumobots using lasercut frames and simple electronics powered by Arduino and the Johnny-Five javascript library.  When we finish our bots, we will test them out in the sumo ring!

It's Sumobot fighting time!!

Originally posted for Facebook, this shows the simplebot using the Captain Arguino Arduino board from www.podpi.com being controlled via AJFisher's UDP transparent bridge to Johnny-five over Adafruit Industries' ESP8266 "Huzzah" development board.

This design was adapted from Andrew Fisher's article in Make: JavaScript Robotics by Rick Waldron & Backstop Media.

I control the bot using W, A, S, D.
