Yes exo-fans, Tetsujin is back for a second action-packed year! Once
again, we'll be part of the giant RoboNexus Conference — which
will be twice as large as last year. To "suit" the quickly-evolving work in
strength augmentation, we've expanded the challenges for Tetsujin 2005.
Now you have three ways to showcase your work:
Weightlifting. Ascend stairs in your suit to the lifting
platform and lift a load of from 100 to 1,000 lbs* from a
squatting position to a height of at least 24 inches*, return
the load to the ground in a controlled manner, and
descend the stairs. Stair-climbing may be unpowered. The
winner is the competitor who lifts the most weight.
Dexterity. Stack nine concrete cylinders weighing about
70 pounds each in a 4-3-2 vertical arrangement, but don't
knock them over as the pyramid grows! The winner is the
competitor who arranges the cylinders in the shortest
Walking Race. Walk the 100 foot* long U-shaped
challenge course, stepping over a small obstacle at the
half-way point. The shortest time wins, with a time bonus
being granted based on any auxillary load carried. Walking
must be powered.
