Hebocon robot building workshop

A workshop from EMF 2022 by Tamar Willson

On Friday June 3, 2022 at in Workshop 3

Do you have a lack of technical skill? Or perhaps you worry about failure? Maybe you’ve got some strange bits of junk that ‘might be useful for something’ but you don’t know what. If any of these are true, (or if you just want to build a robot), come and join us and construct a terrible fighting robot for the Hebocon tournament.

Hebocon is Robot Wars for those who are not technically gifted. The most successful robots are those which are truly ‘heboi’: pathetic, and constructed without the technology or skill that you’d usually expect. Bad ideas and poor construction are the mark of success here, so you can create something free from the weight of any expectations.

We'll have some boxes of junk to rummage through for parts, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own materials too, the weirder the better*!

The actual hebocon tournament will be outside the bar on Saturday night at 6pm: https://www.emfcamp.org/schedule/2022/35...
