There is probably some unwritten rule in robotics that says that any robot that looks cute and happy isn’t a serious competitor. Well, this particular Sunday in Tokyo that unwritten rule was nowhere in evidence when BR3S walked ran away with first place.


BR3S, a micromouse developed by Yin Hsiang Ting of Singapore, clocked the fastest time of the day edging out its closest competitor, MIN4A, by just a hair. And, to add to the suspense, both MIN4A and BR3S finished their fastest runs with just a second or two left on the official’s clock.
