    #1: Yeah, I’m glad something beats the wedges as well, it made events like these kind of boring to watch.

    I really like when the ringed robot does the barrel roll at 3:30. Sweeeeeet.

    I have so many “DO A BARREL ROLL” pictures on my hard drive right now, but I’m thinking of taking a screen cap….

    that was really cool. I’m a big fan of the robot with the giant ring – it seems like there is finally a design that will always beat a wedge

    You can see these robots and many more at RoboGames in San Francisco, this June 13-15!

    I blew most of my savings on the exact same camera two weeks ago and have been having a great, if much less robot-related, time with it. Here are some human motions in the same high-speed frame rate:

    Wheelchair baseball:
    Pole Vault:

    I found is very relaxing, save for when the robot was attacking the fax machine; then, my internal Mortal Kombat kicked in and I found myself growling, “FINISH HIM!”

    That wheelchair baseball was nothing like what I was imagining.

    That camera is definitely on my wish list. It’s about time someone brought high speed video to the masses.
