Sam and Ryan discuss all manner of combat robotics, from Robot Wars to Battlebots and beyond

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.
