This page shows a little side project that I completed at the University of Hertfordshire in 1999. The brief was to add a 3D Model to an existing series of advertising objects. As I competed in Robot Wars Series II, I thought it a good idea to add an ident to the BBC 2 set involving Robot Wars.
Here is the Outcome, First seen on Series III
Weight : 6.1kg / Lightweight
Dimensions : 290mm x 500mm x 570mm
Motors / Drive : Standard 540 motor, using rear drive from a Tamiya Bush Devil.
Steering ; Front from a TA-02 Chassis
Power : 1 x 7.2v dry cell battery
Armor : 3mm Aluminum Checker plate / 1mm Aluminum Sheet / Styrene
Weapons : Servo operated front bucket, Servo operated rear arm, with CD's used as cutting disc.
Radio : 1x Futuba Skysport 40MHz Transmitter.
The Sketch to the right is a concept idea, even so the final outcome worked out to be very close to this sketch.
A side view of the BBC ident. By Using the 2 as the base I took various parts from the shows House Robots.
Here you can see the moving parts of the BBC 2 Ident, with text of the BBC.
A slightly closer view of the BBC 2 Ident showing the features of the shows House Robots.
A closer look at the rear Circular Saw shows the 2x CD's stuck together.
