Spinnerproof features Ryan Bratley and Sam Hutchins talking at length about things in which they have no experience.

Ryan is a student pursuing a career in STEM education having spent thousands of childhood hours building Lego robots and smashing them in a homemade arena. He has spent the past year claiming to be ‘building an antweight’ but has only actually got as far as writing a parts list and making a prototype chassis from foamboard.

Sam is a software developer, with an equally strong background in Lego. He feels that this gives him some “real insight” into the complexities of building a fighting robot.
