MAKE Volume 27 Robot Contest Extended

We’ve extended the deadline for our MAKE Volume 27 robot contest by one week. The new deadline is 11:59 PDT on Friday, May 20, 2011. Got bots with character? We want to meet them! We’re in search of entertaining bots that you’ve built. The most important part of this contest is the video of your bot in action, so even if you haven’t documented your build in detail, show us a video of your bot for a chance to win.

The rules are simple:

1. Come up with an entertaining, original robot with tons of character. If you’ve already built one, great!
2. Document your build step-by-step with clear instructions, photos, and a video of the robot in action, then share it on Make: Projects. If you didn’t shoot step by steps when you did your build, no worries. Create an entry, enter what info you have, and embed your video.
3. Send an email to with a link to your Make: Projects entry when you’re done. Easy!

Check out the original post for more details. Good luck, and most importantly, have fun!

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
