Event Summary:  A kinetic art bot is any mechanical device that has at least one moving part. A kinetic art bot performs no useful function other than entertaining the viewer.


Interactivity is allowed but is not a requirement. This competition will be scored based on:

  • Aesthetics - Does it look good?
  • Attractiveness of movement - Does its motion look good?
  • Functional completeness - Does this bot require a human handler or can it run completely on its own?

Scoring will be done by three judges on a scale of 1 to 10. Their scores will be added together and averaged.

Space will be provided behind a cordon that these robots will be able to operate throughout the day without fear of being touched by the general public.
