Meet Vibrant.
Not saying it's gonna win any tournaments but I hope it will create a few laughs.

That's one of the most original robots I've ever seen :P How much does it weigh?

The version in the picture was almost 150g, but after getting it confirmed that it should be classed as a walker/shufflebot I am working on bigger motors, aluminium blades with Carbide tips and going for the 225g limit, the death hum is now twice as loud, I think it should turn heads ;)
