MEET THE TEAM

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.

Team ICEWAVE uses SolidWorks to design one of the most awesomely destructive bots in the BattleBots stable. This is a great video about how and why we do what we do and how the powerful CAD tool helps us make it happen.

Thanks for being our sponsors, SolidWorks! Here's to many more years of working together to bring awesome robotics to the world.
