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.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
