Robot Info: Octowobble finished in second place at last year's Rally. Tim and Ben (father and son) have been working on the improvement list, and hope to have a more consistent performance this year. The robot is named "Octowobble" because it's octagonal body shape. The 'wobble' was added because it sounds good. Much of the robot is made from salvaged materials -- Roomba wheels and edge sensors, a surplus aluminum sign, erector set, and a couple of plastic Easter eggs.
