Telerobotic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots

Robotics Technology

Just when you thought Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots couldn’t get any cooler, makers Zachery Shivers and Anne Flinchbaugh go ahead and add a bunch of servos, a custom controller board, and some fancy sensor-laden wireless watches from TI to allow you to control your robot remotely. As an entry to the Texas Instruments Co-op Design Challenge, the souped-up game uses sensor readings from a pair of Chronos watches worn by each opponent to control their respective robot.
