      @Alden - Good to hear that some of the posters are making it out :)
      Seems a bit odd that the sponsors page was never updated, would have thought that would be the least work of the project.

      I received two posters on 17 April 2013, Estimated delivery: May 2012. The extra poster was nice. I still see no sponsors on the http://mech-warfare.com/sponsors.html page.

      Thanks for following through Andrew.

      Any word from Andrew since summer?

      I don't think that any of the rewards have been delivered; website links, posters, in-arena signs, etc.

      I contacted the original artist for the commissioned poster, Søren Bendt, and requested a high resolution download of the art file. http://sonobeno.blogspot.com/2012/03/mech-warfare-poster.html

      While the artist is unable to provide a high resolution image of the poster, he has put me in contact with the individual who commissioned the piece from him.

      69 posters. That was all that was committed, if I'm reading the rewards page correctly.

      I don't even see any sponsors listed at http://mech-warfare.com/sponsors.html

      Have any of the reward levels at all been delivered?

      @Alden - Sadly looks like it...
      I also had a look at the website for any further info and it looks like it hasn't been updated in a while.

      I'm guessing the posters have gone vaporware?

      Ah good. I was worried. Cool beans.

      Hey Lem! We ran into some pretty major budget issues in terms of going way over. Everything is sorted now and I'm getting ready to ship out the goodies very soon. I just finished uploading the huge gallery for this year's Mech Warfare, expect an official update this week with status updates on everything.

      Just wondering what the current schedule is for the deliverables, like the website mentions/links, posters, etc. Could you give us an update?

      Agreed with Paul Gentile about street-level bot cameras. If you can add real-time processing to the feeds, adding a bunch of telemetry data to the edges of the feed--as if it were a real mech cockpit--would be keen! E.g. speed, heading, ammo remaining, health status (??), an enemy radar, fuel (power) remaining...

      Hey Paul-

      We have a competition at Shepherd University which is near DC. Not quite east coast but close!

      We actually had a hexapod robot with a camcorder strapped to it getting a lot of video for us the last two years. I'll probably build a smaller wheeled bot for the purpose though- thanks for reminding me!

      Creator Paul Gentile on March 28, 2012

      Love it! We need an east coast league now.

      I love when your videos are from the "street level." It would be awesome if you can record the bots video feeds and display them during the competition. How about having some "News bots" in the arena - small little robots that act like video reporters, just running around getting video of the action from the "street level" point of view.

      You may want to add a $5 donation option. I do not think a lot of people know that you can just crank the $1 donation up to $5.

      r060t, you're in the same boat as most of us involved with Mech Warfare. We all dreamed of giant robots and are doing our best in making it a reality. Thanks for your support!

      Creator r060t on March 12, 2012

      This is the type of thing I used to dream of when skipping English class to work on a robot. I wish you luck and hope to see this at the next games!
