I waited to blog this since I know most of you are last minute folks, but this contest looks easy to do and fun. Imagine the robot above will be a pain to do, it's a lot of space, so the contest actually is for the bottom robot (the legs) all you have to do is customize that one, and you're in! Get to it.
