STAR WARS ROBOTS
Undergraduate students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Department of Mechanical Engineering competing in the annual 2.007
Star Wars-themed robot competition in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US, last week. The competition featured a 3D model X-Wing with a 3.35m wingspan and four jet engines. The students’ robots are challenged to move to the engines and spin them. The 2.007 Robot Competition was started more than 40 years ago by MIT professor emeritus Woodie Flowers.
