LED Football 2

If you’re old enough, you’ll remember the days of LED football. Cut the shit, pops. You know exactly what game I’m talking about. Move the lights, run the ball, score the TDs.

The robot detects obstacles in its path, moves towards them and then avoids them by going around them or by going in the opposite direction. It’s run by four AA batteries which power three motors and ...
