What’s cuter than Überclocker? A smaller Überclocker! 12 O’Cl0cker takes the same concept behind 30lb Überclocker – the “clampbot” design, and brings it down to 12 pounds. The bot features the same kind of spring-loaded forward outriggers that help it remain mobile with an opponent in the grabber. The drivetrain is geared extremely fast, with soft high traction wheels for a maneuverability advantage.
12 O’Clocker is designed for the Robot Battles sumo-style 12lb class and will not compete in the conventional 12lb class, unless a Sportsman division is formed for said class. That’s because the bot is too lightly armored and “pokey” to face off well against most of the 12lb spinning weaponry.
