Gerald gets his name from the Pink Floyd song “Bike”. In the song Sid includes a verse about a mouse whose name is “Gerald”. We thought it was a fitting name for our little guy.
Gerald is one of our most successful combat robots. It has competed and won championships in both the Heavyweight (220 lb) and Super-Heavyweight (340 lb) divisions AT the same tournament, often fighting back to back fights first against a 220 lb opponent and then against a 340 lb opponent with out any repairs or even a battery recharge between matches. Its really an awesome machine.
Gerald’s frame is 100% Titanium and it stings a drum on the front at over 6000 rpm. The drum acts like a power planer on wood, only it does that against metal.
