Engineering students have created a future tech machine called Sweeney Todd that moves using mecanum motion to allow them to go in any direction around the arena, and PP3D has been built using a lot of 3-D printed parts.

It has wheels as tall as a washing machine and a huge samurai sword. Other robots include Thermidor shaped like a lobster by a team who have never eaten lobster. Pulsar built by 19-year-old self-taught engineer Ellis and features nine thousand RPM spinning teeth. There are dramatic scenes as one of the robots bursts into flames in the arena.
