Pop Quiz 2 uses a custom made brushless DC motor direct driving a horizontally mounted 12″ titanium bar blade, and is one of the lowest profile 1lb Antweights with an active weapon. The ultra-low design is hard to flip over or get under, though it has been known to happen. It is also armed with a sloped wedge front as defense and backup weapon and acts as a pushybot well.
Pop Quiz is the bot I use whenever I need to show someone the concept of “combat robots” due to its portability and highly visible weapon.
