Introducing “Doomforge” an Omni-Directional Flamethrower

Alright. Time to design a 3lb bot! I’m going for something I’ve never seen done before, an omni-directional flamethrower!

My plan is to use a ps3 controller + USB Host Shield + Arduino Uno for my drive. A bit ambitious, but I’m excited!

Flamethrowers aren’t very effective typically in combat robots, but with the large amount of plastic in insect-weight classes, combined with the added maneuverability this bot will have, maybe it can do some damage. If not, it’ll still look freakin’ awesome!
