DFRobot Christmas Challenge

I found this DFRobot challenge and I thought, 'Hey, it's been a while since anyone has posted a link to a contest on LMR'.

Then I thought, 'What's the difference between an external contest by some other website and an LMR Challenge?'

So I'm posting a link to the DFRobot Christmas Challenge.

Here's some info from their site, just for convenience.


  1. You need to use a DFRobot robotic platform:

Links for some suggested platforms: (NOTE: the competition has been extended to any DFRobot robotic platform)

  1. Make your own robot using the included parts and any other items (sensors, motors, costumes, etc...) you might want to add.
  2. Make it look good, and most important, have fun!
  3. Deadline: February 15th 2012

NOTE: If you already have the 4WD platform you may also participate!

I think I just changed my project timeline to accomodate this challenge. Thanks ig!

I think posting an external challenge qualifies as spam. I'm marking it till the admins make the call. No offense implied, just my interpretation of the rules as people around hear seem to brag about killing spam.

Ok my bad!

crap... 2 years late.  lol.

oh well the contest entries are inspiration for what to do for my build.
