What makes Crushtacean unique...
Father and son Ian and Dom, have been building Crushtacean for 15 years and they were inspired by the infamous ‘crab-bot’ from Arthur C Clarke’s ‘Rendezvous with Rama’ which destroyed other robots by chopping them up with its claws and dumping them in a pit. The team say they look at Crushtacean like a member of the family now and they took an earlier version of the model to series two, five, and six of the original Robot Wars however Dom was too young too assist.
