IDC Robocon – Day 7 – 5 days before the competition

15 Jul

By Glenn Sim

This is the final stretch before the competition and most groups are almost done with their robots. We went out to the electronic shop to get the items we needed for our robots. Compared our robotic hobby shops in Singapore, the ones in Sao Paolo really pales in comparison. There were many things which we required but couldn’t get and thus, had to resort to alternatives which didn’t really perform as well. Nonetheless, we managed to find most of the items we need.

We went to the city market nearby to have lunch before heading to the electronics store.

As the seeding and competition day draws nearer, we are all getting excited and anxious at the same time. Mixed feelings as we don’t want this awesome trip to end.
