The 1st Kondo Land Robot Contest, featuring a life sized replica of a steeplechase cum video game, was a rousing success, so much so that the company just announced the schedule for the 2nd competition, along with some interesting new twists.

While the basic obstacle course will remain essentially the same with its Magic Wall, Motor House, Wobbly Bridge, and other hazards, there will also be special switches placed around the course. If the robot can manage to push the switches while exploring the obstacles, it will score points towards an undisclosed "special prize" from the company.

Demand from potential participants has been so strong that the company has increased the total number of entry berths to 24, more that double the entries in the first competition.
