Linford Lobster was a robot from Connah's Quay High School in Flintshire that competed in the Swimming event during Series 3 of Techno Games in 2002. It was finished in five months and is powered by a 12V drill battery. It didn't do well as it lost in its first heat to Nautilus Mega-Kid and K9000 II despite finishing third in its heat.
Robot History[edit | edit source]
In Linford Lobster's first and only heat, it went up against Sewme-Nator, Nautilus Mega-Kid, Supersonicsquiddy and the reigning Swimming champion from Series 2 K9000 II. Nautilus Mega-Kid easily passed through Linford Lobster and the other three competitors to finish first at 31:15 seconds. Linford Lobster couldn't catch up with Supersonicsquiddy and K9000 II but it kept on going despite its slow movement. K9000 ended up taking second place at a time of 49:03 seconds and Supersonicsquiddy along with Sewme-Nator broke down entirely. This left Linford Lobster to finish third place at an excruciating time of 3:28:56 seconds. Despite finishing the race, it was the first and second place winners only to go through to the Swimming quarterfinals and since it finished third, it was eliminated from the Swimming overall.
