I got a LOT of stuff in my house

if you have stuff just enter then 

if you have stuff just enter then 

I think most of the bots you see here are made from various "junk" we have around our houses, I know my BRP is....
And then how do you define "junk around the house? I have some pretty cool and expensive "junk" Some of it has been over 180miles per hour (racecar takeoffs).
And "you can not buy any stuff" (the main point of this challnge is to make a robot with a cost of none )
Really, so, I need to make a microcontroller out of twine and cardboard scraps, maybe old radio parts? And sensors also? It seems we might have needed to buy these things already? (newbies need not apply) They can't be "junk" or they probably do not work. 

I really don't see any way you can have a materials challenge.... 
One man's junk is anothers treasure. 

I'll give it a go... HERE is my entry. It is made from mostly scrap, and has an Instructable. It weighs 3lbs. How many points do I get? Also, could I add a sumo-mode to my robot for an additional 15 points.

yes you can


I have an old led robot "face" from an old toy. I has inputs for left eye, left eye blink, right eye, side teeth and middle tooth. It is from the S.B.D. 3000 robot bank toy. Does it count as a display?

yes ti does
