'Slider' Armed Robotic Sentry

Intended for mild security duty, the Slider is armed with a dual laser turret and three targeting eyes to help it discern distance and movement. On flat ground it can maintain a maximum moving speed of nearly 15 MPH, and due to its lightweight construction it has a vertical jump of 4.2 feet. However, Sliders have severe difficulty making sudden stops or turns at speeds above 6 MPH, prompting their nickname.

The standard Slider model shown here weighs in at a mere 180 lbs and stands about 4' tall. While the dual laser turret remains the most popular choice of weaponry, Sliders are also available with dual submachine guns or a single high-caliber machine gun in the turret.

Although not a particularly fearsome robot individually, Slider units are able to wirelessly communicate with each other to swarm a foe. Those who are interested in low-cost security often will purchase a few Sliders rather than spring for a larger, more expensive robot due to how easy it is to upgrade a security force by adding extra Slider units.

Ahhh, it's cute. Until it jumps on my face and rips out my eyes. But it's cute.

I like the design, I think you should stick with it.

Is Cloxboy the only judge for this deal?
Sweetcell (Jun 1, 2006)
He really is cute. Eye lazers and all.
Zack (edited Jun 1, 2006)
Yeah, at the moment. I don't know if it'd be cool to add another judge in the middle of the contest, but I'm sure Clox would be down with another judge or two for future contests. Thanks Sweetcell.

I like this design. Reminds me of 'scrabs' from Abe's Oddysee. Man, that was a cool game, much like this drawing! :D
Zack (Jun 2, 2006)
Hah, I remember those now. Might have been an unconscious influence on this design. Thanks. :]

Congratulations Zack! "guard drone [warrior bot]" is awarded first place for Contest Week 16: Robots. Zack's robot was well designed and neatly rendered. The "Slider" makes a great warrior robot, it's function is easily seen in it's design. The drawing itself is tight and beautifully composed. The description was also very fitting and imaginative. Well done Zack. :)
