Barcode – Sumo wrestle

What to do

Create your own sumo wrestle ring using black electrical tape on a white surface. The ring should be around 40cm/16in in diameter.

Place two Edisons inside the ring and press play on both at the same time.

Each Edison is now slowly driving forward, staying inside the ring and ‘looking’ for the opponent. If the opponent is detected Edison charges forward at full speed until the edge of the ring is detected. He then reverse back victorious and continues to look for another opponent.

Battles don’t always go to plan, as there are so many variables, such as the angle of the opponent, the proximity of the edge of the ring or just plain bad luck.
