Length of Event: 2 minutes
Robot Weight Range: Open
Robot Dimensions: Open
Arena Specifications: None
Robot Control: Autonomous or Remote Control
Engineering Principles: Motion Control, Gait, Proprioception, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science
Event Summary: Humanoid robots are programmed to spend two minutes displaying whatever dance, moves, acrobatics, demonstration, or series of demonstrations that the operator sees fit. Music is allowed as is human interaction with the robot. There are no restriction on the robot, except that it may have no weapons or projectiles.
         

Classes:
Robots will be divided into two classes - Kit Class and Original. Kit class robots are robots which are purchased (either assembled or as a kit) and reprogrammed. Robots that have been fundamentally created from scratch by the contestant will be considered "original." Minor modifications to kits do not qualify the robot to be moved into the Original Class. All sectioning of robots is at the sole discretion of event officials.

Judging Criteria:
Each judge will award one to ten points for each of the below criteria. All points will be added and combined, and a score will be given to each contestant. Points will be awarded in the following three areas:

Originality - How original was the concept? Was this work clearly well thought out? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Agility - Was the Robo-One's moves as flexible as a gymnast or athlete? How difficult would it be for a human to do similar move.

Variety of Moves - Did the robot go through a series of motions which were ever changing - or were they all similar in movement?
