Shu! is a Beetleweight robot that comes equipped with a lifter/jacking mechanism to raise the front of the robot up and down. This acts as a lifter, whacker and a self righting mechanism.


Shu 1.0
Shu! is a 2 wheel drive robot where the drive wheels act as a pivot point whilst another motor drives a arm to jack the front of the robot up or lifts the arm up over 180 degrees, becoming a lifter robot. This design is loosely inspired by Medusa 2000 from Robot Wars series 4.
