visibility_off GUNG HO Operation: Refine Launched
We are pleased to announce the launch of our next GUNG HO Challenge, Operation: Refine.
The initial GUNG HO Concept Challenge was meant to inspire creative and unique ideas around a small transportation robot that is robust and capable. The Launch Forth community came through with 57 entries and ideas. In the new Operation: Refine Challenge, we are asking you to take inspiration from the winning designs from the GUNG HO Concept Challenge and refine, re-design, or create a new GUNG HO robot.
We are encouraging the community to look not only at the design of the robot but also the engineering behind it. We want to see your ideas for robots that can carry bulk cargo, transport injured people, distribute supplies, function autonomously and, ultimately, can be built! Our friends at Spektre Works were so inspired by the communities’ concept entries that they have helped us define an initial autonomy kit for this challenge to give you a head start for this new GUNG HO robot.
Also, we have launched an Early Bird Prize structure around Operation: Refine to get ideas flowing in early to help inspire other members of the community. Check out the project update for Early Bird Prizes and use it to team up with other community members to refine those entries into something incredible!
