From Team Doom Robotics and Tyler Nguyen comes Commander Doom 2, an antweight (1 pound) fighting robot that really packs a punch.
Based on the Algos design, Commander Doom 2 was built using waterjet cut parts from Big Blue Saw. Here's a sneak look inside from during the build:
Commander Doom competed at Bot Blast 2017, winning 2 matches before the weapon caught on fire, leading Tyler to forfeit the next match.
Here's a look at Commander Doom defeating an opponent:
Tyler did end up winning the Sportsmanship Award. Congratulations!
The armor and frame panels were waterjet cut by Big Blue Saw from grade 5 titanium, while we made the disc weapon from chromoly steel.
Team Doom will be back at Hickory Bot Battles 2017 in Hickory, North Carolina on August 19, 2017. Be sure to catch them there. They'll have a few new surprises for their opponents, made with help from Big Blue Saw.
