Marc DeVidts

Team Leader. A BattleBots veteran since high school, Marc is a Maker’s Maker, versed in mechanical, electrical and software engineering.  His time outside Icewave is spent as co-founder and CTO of Double Robotics, Inc.


Angie Bamblett

Mechanical Designer. A mechanical engineer, Angie is the Battlebots rookie of the team. She’s designed and built MANY things, but Icewave 2015 was her first fighting robot. When she’s not neck-deep in CAD and calculations for Icewave, she works as a product designer for Double Robotics, Inc.


Andrew Adams

Production Specialist. Andrew’s robot fighting experience comes from FIRST tournaments in high school, where he liked to use strategy as much as steel to win. He’s the team all-rounder with a tool ready for any need.


Hector Saldana

Machining Specialist. Hector is a mechanical engineer who was involved in the early design of 2015 Icewave, though he wasn’t in the Tournament. His passion for the machine shop led him to return in a part-time role on 2016 Team Icewave, where he helped with tasks specifically related to CNC machining and fabrication.


Alex Rosas

Team Handyman. Alex is a production technician at Double Robotics who was an invaluable extra pair of hands during the 2016 Icewave build. He helped out with any kind of task, from bolt-tightening to rewiring to careful application of foam.

Due to the Olympics, episode 5 will repeat tonight, followed by ep. 6 next Thursday (these are the two episodes that were delayed by the political conventions so here is your chance to get a good DVR copy). We'll be back Aug 25 with ep. 8 and the conclusion of the sweet 16. Until then, we'll keep the BattleBox clean and at the ready.

No Bots, again. Go check out world class athletes of the flesh-and-blood variety, instead.
