Greetings from the future!
After in total approximately 40 hours of traveling and no bed around (sleeping on two airports (Dubai and Tokio)) we finally arrived in Nagoya, Japan yesterday seven hours ahead of Germany. Greetings from the future (Spoiler alert: The world is still alive)! 12 suitcases and bags with in total holding approximately 240kg of robots, stuff and tools have been transported around half the world for this big major tournament. At the apartment we spotted the surroundings. After we fall asleep till the next morning and some of us are still jet lagged. In the next morning we started assembling the robots and did some basic testing in the apartment. We had some minor issues. Some 3d printed parts were broken. Some fixings were made by delicate melting with naked flames over the gas driven hotplate. Don’t do this at home. Here are professionals working. Weather is quite hot and humidity is high. We sweat a lot.
