Vishay's OPTO blog site for the latest in all things OPTOELECTRONICS ~ articles, videos, and products

Robot Battles (or… this is what happens when German engineers have spare time in the lab)

In the Vishay, Heilbronn Germany, Opto lab they decided to have a bit of fun with Vishay components.  These little guys have LEDS and IREDs as weapons (and one has a IREDs nose).  Resistor arms, chip feet, and a bit of PCB and connector goodness to make up the rest of the body.  All topped off with diode antennas (for communication of course).   The dragon is courtesy of a mini-engineer a.k.a. engineer’s daughter.

The Contestants!
