TOD (Triangle Of self-Destruction
TOD (Short for Triangle of self-Destruction) was a 450g robot from Finland built by Team Final Destination. It was a invertible, three-wheeled, translational drift spinner. The robot moved by spinning up, to speed, where it would move across the arena because it was deliberately imbalanced. Each wheel was driven by a servo, and it had blades that retracted from the corners of the triangular chassis. [1] 

Despite generally proving to be completely uncontrollable, TOD performed well in competition, never failing to reach the quarter-finals, and even placed third at its first ever event. TOD was retired in 2007 after performing progressively worse, and worse since its 2006 debut after only three events.
