It’s BAAACK!!! Simplexity’s Halloween Mechatronics Contest returns with some “killer” contenders.
We finally made it to our favorite month, October! A month when our engineers get busy designing and building Halloween-themed mechatronic contraptions that use advanced engineering skills in mechanical, electrical, computer, and controls engineering for a chance to win CASH prizes and major bragging rights.
In in just a few short weeks time, the competing teams manage to dream, create, and design a contraption for the contest all while working full time on projects for Simplexity clients. This year we have 4 teams participating, but only 3 will take home cash prizes based on YOUR VOTES!
|So, what kind of skills go into designing a
Halloween Mechatronics contraption for your entertainment?
Along with a hefty list of engineering skills, special expertise is needed when dealing with design that incorporates mechatronics, embedded motion, gear design and analysis, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart sensing.
So what do our teams have in store for us this year? Even we don’t know what their design entails until they submit their videos.
If you like engineering, Halloween, robotic things, or just like watching funny videos that may or may not contain cats, babies, zombies, or robotic sharks, stay tuned because we need your votes to determine this year’s winners!
