I saw this on RobotDreams a few months ago. This contest was done at the Wonderful Robot Carnival July. 2010 in Kawasaki, Japan. It was called the Bottle Traction Competition. I have been wanting to do it since July. Now that Boomer MK III is working, I wanted to try it out. Below is the video that Lem took.
Here is my setup with Boomer ready to go.
I am thinking that the table top my be too slick? I may need to make boots for Boomer?
I stopped Boomer too soon but I was afraid that he was going to walk off of the table. The Pull was 95 cm.
The pull was 20 1/2 cm. Not great but not bad.
