build a robot that holds the bucket of candy, and when kids come trick or treating, drive the bot around the yard so they cant get at the candy, and a metal “lid” that folds down over the bucket of candy
the kids in my neighborhood are very aggressive and will do anything for candy, so i will have to make it strong otherwise they will probably destroy it.
annoy the kids who annoy me with the best candy that the can not get at;
more candy for me
im gonna be sitting on my couch watching tv
and when kids come just watch out the front window
if anything happens ill just have the wrench and alan key just sitting on a small table beside the front porch
so ill go tighten everything up after every visit =D
just hope those punks dont steal it =(
or completly obliterate it
i just want it to be able to last the whole night (doubt it will)
yeah. i live in like irvine, and go to one of the top public high schools in the state (california), and all the asian kids are playing tennis and are completely occupied, and all the white kids do here is surf (or have no interest in robotics). I was in an advanced technology class (that had vex robotics in it), but none of the people in it are interested in competeing.
It’s also a little late, since competition is in a couple months (I heard Early-mid December), and I’ll have too much homework and soccer and i won’t have enough time to compete and go all these places.
Not that I wouldn’t like to compete. I’d love to compete. I just can’t find any team members. I’ll try to get something better organized for next year (maybe start a club at my high school and create several teams, since clubs have to have at least 25 people), raise money, and find more of my friends and classmates to teach robotics to and get ready for the competition.
(One thing i’ve been wanting to master is Solidworks. I have the student edition, but it’s really confusing on how to mate parts).
Our school is a month behind because MTV made decided to infiltrate because one of our classmates wanted to learn about robotics.
It was annoying as hell and we are now a month behind because we had to build a robot for a mini competition for the made episode. >.< We had to completely change our design because of time restraints.
I was thinking of making a bat on a string. Hang it from your porch cieling. Let the bat go (with some servo) and watch it swing into kid’s faces. This wouldn’t scare older kids, but it would be funny to watch a 7 year old running away in terror.
what kinda really sucks, is that i am so close to finishing, but i ran out of metal, and screws
so i ordered a ton of screws and nust and metal hardware and a programing kit on tueday, but i live in ct
and it is shipped from tx
so i wont get it till monday
so ill have to finish the whole thing between monday and tuesday
so itll be ready for wednesday
but hopefully it will come ahead of scedual and come tomorrow
