Millie

Millie was the Robot taken to the World Championships by Adam, Finn, Matt and Tristram. It was the results of years of hard from Adam and Finn with a few interesting tweaks brought in by Matt and Tristram. Although the robot didn't rate at Worlds, the robot will be kept together and used a base for teams in the future to learn from.

Built and programmed in just 6 weeks between New Zealand nationals and the World Championships, Millie was very cleanly built and programmed to suit. Millie was built to play capacity in starstruck, where as the majority of robots played for speed. This was helpful in some games, however poor luck and a lack of practice meant the majority of matches at the world champioships were lost.
