ROBO-GAMES which drew a large number of  students at the Baski Court started  at 11 am today. The games will continue till tomorrow. Around 105 teams from different engineering colleges participated in the event.

There were three games designed for the robots. The first game was autonomous game that was based on programme. According to this game, the robot was to act as an intelligent transporter and pick a coloured ball and to study its colour.

Saucer like plane
A FOUR-MEMBER students team of IIT-K has developed a plane similar to a flying saucer. It has both forward and backward sweep facilities.

Team members— Manoj Kumar Tripathi, Kumar Abhishek Rahul Haran, AN Singh and Hardik Makkar, while explaining the design of the new plane, said its wings were only one meter long and it did not have any fuselage. This would help it to fly higher and smoothly. The plane requires only ether as fuel and it can take off straight from the surface, they said. The team members said the plane was so designed that it could fly even in bad weather conditions and was highly stable.

It can be used as carrier of bombs and also for spying purposes. They said soon the working model of the plane would be developed at the institute.
