Start Your Bots.

Earlier this month, NYC's Javits Center hosted the first ever regional robotics build. Named, "FIRST Overdrive," the event was presided over by M. Bloomberg, and put 64 high school teams and their custom built bots to the ultimate test. The ultimate test: robots race around an elliptical track lifting, pushing, carrying and passing 40" inflated trackballs. Extra points are scored by robots positioning the trackballs on a 6'6" overpass before the end of the 2 minute and 15 second match.

TMT wants to congratulate our hometown heroes. Montclair High's own "Partially Robotic Bulldog of Death, Destruction and Gracious Professionalism," aka Team 555 won!

But big cheers also for th
eir sister team, the lady "Foxybots."

Thanks to Baristanet, the place for all your northern NJ robot news.
