  • DefconBots has prizes!

    I've been hustling to get prizes for DefconBots winners and so far we have some great stuff donated from some awesome, and very generous, companies:

    Sparkfun has donated 15% off coupon codes for all DefconBots competitors. Email for your coupon code!

    Barobo has donated a Linkbot-L robot with a camera mount.

    This is a very cool arduino-compatible and wirelessly-programmable modular robot platform. You could use one of these to make a defconbots competitor for next year!

    Pololu has donated TWO Zumo robot kits. They've also donated coupon codes, but they vary by product. Email if you'd like to get a discount on your order from

    These are robust little robot kits that would make a great sumo robot or just a fun platform to build something on.

    Wicked Lasers has donated a Nano Laser (75mW - purple)

    Wicked lasers make...wicked lasers. These lasers are also nearly indestructible and incredibly powerful.

    SolidWorks has donated some solidworks swag, including some notebooks, flash drives, and bags to carry your defcon goodies in.

    And more to come!

    If you know of, or work for, a great company that would be willing to donate prizes to our contest please email me:!
