Yes that’s right, we won!!!! Well let me clarify that a little. We won the Artistic Merit prize which basically means our robot was the cutest and obviously we are feeling very proud. We can now make the video entries public so take a moment to watch as Stevie Wong introduces you to the sweetest bee robot you’ll ever see with original soundtrack from CyanShaman.
We also did well in the Obstacle Course, coming fifth in our category. This was the most fun to film with lots of drama and near misses. I think we would have come higher if it wasn’t for the really tough competition. Turns out everyone was trying really hard and are also really talented, darn it.
We got fourth place in Up the Garden Path with some excellent programming from Mitch. We love the way his antennae bob back and forth as he shuffles round.
We came a well-earned seventh in the Tidy Up the Toys.
A plucky eighth in Feed the Fish where we got a grand total of one projectile in the fish bowl out of a potential fifteen. But see how beautifully we decorated our bowl.
And finally, we got third place for this blog! Thank you, thank you, you’ve been a wonderful audience, I couldn’t have done it without you. Overall, we came fifth out of ten in our category which we are very pleased with.
Pi Wars 2021 has been absolutely amazing for us this year. It gave us a real focus to keep our PI Jam going in some capacity and has been a welcome distraction in very difficult times. We’d like to thank the organisers for all their hard work that has enabled us to take part. We’ve learnt so much and we hope to be back next year, older, wiser and with an even cuter robot. Got to play to your strengths. Thank you also to all of you who followed this blog. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
See you next year.
