Mark Setrakian of Robot Combat League on EvD #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Check out the latest video from EngineerVsDesigner.Com, featuring robotics designer Mark Setrakian talking about the the SyFy tv show Robot Combat League and the unique robotics design challenges involved with competing with designs created from the get-go with planned self-destruction and crumple-zones in mind — to keep your giant robot in the ring long enough to destroy your giant robot competitor:

What does it take to design and build giant robots that fight each other to total destruction in four months? This week we had the chance to sit down and talk with robot designer Mark Setrakian about designing robots for the new SyFy tv show Robot Combat League. We’ll hear about what software he uses, how he prototypes, and does he actually have his own personal robot?

We’ll be discussing:

  • How did you get involved with robotics design?
  • What is Robot Combat League and how are the robots controlled?
  • What do the next five years look like for home-based robotic manufacturing?
  • What advice do you have for somebody interested in learning robotics?
  • …and more!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
