Moonbots Entry

Tim (BlueToothKiwi) and his kids are putting together a moonbot. You may remember the Surveyor SVR-1 Robot that we featured here before as part of the Google Lunar X-Prize. Well since most people don’t have the funds to enter the regular competition with the $30 million dollar prize there is now a Moonbots competition that allows adults and children to participate in the robot building action.

Thanks Tim.

"So my kids and I were delighted when X PRIZE Foundation, Google and LEGO announced the new Moonbots challenge on Friday. The new contest will challenge small teams comprised of children and adults to design, program, and construct robots that perform simulated lunar missions similar to those required to win the $30 million Google Lunar X PRIZE. First my children and I set up a team and started work on our first prototype. The first attempt was very encouraging – we managed to create an autonomous robot that can roam around inside a crater of the moon without hitting the edges of the crater. [We used our pool to do the testing]."
