#10 - Design a robot!

13 November 2020

Skill Description Competition Creativity

Winners announced!

Thank you to everyone who entered our robot competition this week - we thought all of your ideas were fantastic! But, there can only be two winners…

Our primary school winner this time is consistent_cliff of Whyteleafe School E, who invented the “Teabot1”! This robot-butler promises to make the perfect cup of tea whilst helping you to get ready in the mornings. Great!

Our secondary winner is positive_potato of Faringdon Community College. Their robot, the “Construct-O-Bot 1000” would do the job of a human engineer...but better! It would also be cheaper and safer than human workers too.

Your challenge is to design a robot that could do a job better than a human. You can choose any job for your robot so be as creative as you like! For example...

You could describe a cleaning machine with lots of attachments that could make a house sparkle in seconds, OR explain how a robot-teacher might work. Don't forget to say what makes your robot better than a human!

Need help getting going? Uses these sentence starters:

My robot is called... (name).

It does the job of a ... (type of worker).

It is better at this job than a human because ... (explain your robot's features).

We are looking for ideas that combine originality, creativity and some well thought-out explanations.


The deadline for entries is Friday November 6th at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE. Good luck!

    Our robot is a teacher and it can teach anything you programme it to teach for example; Maths, English, Science, Art, Reading etc. It is called Robot Miss Lander. Anything you ask it it'll answer it in under a second!

    our robot would be Barack 3000
    His job would be to be the best president ever-the complete opposite of trump!!!!!!!!
    he would look black and smart
    his 11 arms would be able to :
    .eat
    show an action
    .argue
    and do everything else human hands can do!
    He would be better than a human because he is not violent and is always reasonable and kind!!!!!!!

      majestic_tsunami's comment 06 Nov 2020

      A very interesting suggestion! A robot leader is something we've never seen before - why else would it be better than a human leader? Are there things a human leader might do that a robot could be programmed to avoid?

    Robot Miss Lander will be better than a human because if our teacher was ill then the robot could come and teach us in the same way our teacher would, it'll act like a normal teacher and may even give us the oppurtunity on Friday to pick what we do in the afternoons, it may even give us extra play time!

    My robot is called NITRO CATCH 1000
    Its job would be a police officer
    It would look kind of like a human but with his police outfit no one would ever tell he was a robot.
    The reason it would be better then a human is because sometimes when somebody is running away from a police officer, they cant catch them, well the robot will have super speed. It will be able to catch him straight away. As well as that many officers have got hurt because the person they caught had a weapon but with the robot that would never happen. So in the end nobody would have to get hurt. It would also have extra sections in it for weapons in case if something happened. It could have looooong arms so if someone is across the road or climbing up somewhere, it could catch them quicker. Another thing it could do is once they have seen the person they know immediately where to catch them.
    So overall in my opinion the robot would make it quicker, safer and would help us.

    My robot would be programmed to help do surgery in hospital because if we program it correctly surgerys can occasionally go wrong .This better then humans doing it because there is so many things that can go wrong during the process and robots can do anything if made a programmed correctly.I would make this robot powered environmentally to help the planet I would call my robot the future because its programming skills will be able to save lives and the robot has so much knowledge also you associate robots with the future

    My robot would be designed to be a nurse and it's name would be Happy- 2000.
    it would:
    .Make coronavirus eliminate completely
    .Have 15 stretchy and flexible strong arms so it can do lots of things at once
    .Be really fast so it can get to patients more quickly
    .Have 11 brains so it would be really clever and instantly come up with treatments for medical problems
    .Have a computer chip inside it so if it or anyone wanted to look something up the robot would have all the answers

    My robot is called Sir Magonical and ,the type of jobs he’ll will be good at is being a cafe staff
    I think my robot will do an amazing job at this because of the pandemic we having to close down shop and more but if we had robots it would be very good because that way humans are really getting in contact with the virus but remember they can still get it only if they follow the resection rules. In some countries like Chinese they have already started to develop robots to work in cafes and restaurants which is good because then you might end up having a great service and you might enjoy your time personally I think robot would do a great job as a cafe staff by giving the food the people. Do you agree with m

    Hi BNC,
    ingenious_forest here,
    I think this is a great competition as in the future, a lot of jobs will be done by robots I reckon!
    My entry is this:
    Robot Name: FairJudge2020
    Job: Judge
    Why it would be better than a human: It would always be fair, and would not be persuaded against the truth. It would be able to detect lies, and would never believe something if it was not true.
    It would be shaped vaguely like a human and would be black.
    I think that this would be a good job, as a lot of cases that go to court are not judged correctly.
    Thank you for reading!

    My robot which I would design would be caring and respectful,
    It would have a great sense of humor and make everyone laugh.Intelligent as well so it could help out if anyone would be stuck in a problem.It could think just like a human so it could understand exactly how we feel,I would also give it a friendly face so it could be friends with everyone and so everyone can communicate and interact with it.This robot won't be disrespectful and won't fall into a fight so everyone can have a lovely time.It would be very creative and quick-thinking because then everyone can have brilliant ideas from that robot.Lastly it would work in many places for all to relax and have a great time.

    My robot would be a police robot because it could be a robot with weals so if a criminal was driving away it could chase after it without the criminal noticing. The robot would be made with 5 plates of aluminium so the robot would be way stronger than the criminal.

    eager_reflection here,
    This is my robot.
    Robot Name: ASTRALCOLLECTOR2000
    Job: Astronaut
    Why it would be better than a human: A robot does not need oxygen to survive, whereas a human does. Space exploration is dangerous so using a robot will make no risk for a human's life being taken. Finally, robots can find interesting facts about the planet/asteroid/moon, like that there is water on certain planets, much easier than humans. Humans normally use technology, but robots ARE the technology.
    My robot will have lots of arms to collect samples, high-tech scanners, be made of heat-proof metal, and has a bucket on its back to store the samples. I think that this robot will be great because it can find things no human can or will find.
    Thanks for reading!

    My (first) robot would be called: (female) Maya3000, occupation/job: Pet operationist (Vet). Targets: To try and prepare for a pet disease that will maybe come soon (A bit like The Black Death) and try to end it sooner than The Black Death. Would try to come up with a vaccine to send to doctors to give vaccines to people while they are doing the animals who have caught it.

    My robot's name is: TWH 900 (the world's helper 900)
    My robot was programmed to solve the world's problems etc.
    The TWH 900 is by far the most complex, helpful and intelligent machine here on earth. We've run a few field test with the TWH and it's scientifically proven that this machine can out do the worlds most greatest scientists (including me) and engineers etc.
    I'm sure that the TWH 900 will help the world like no other since it can fly across the world in a span of 0.001 seconds helping humanity in time of danger quicker then ever not to mention it can help stop flooding, wild fires and other cataclysmic calamities. It's also programmed to defeat illnesses such as the common cold to the deadliest of diseases.
    It also lectures people to do the right thing the TWH is capable by doing this by holding events every month in different countries teaching people about the worlds problems such as: racism, inequality and poverty and how to help and these solve problems.
    We're planning to make thousands more to help and save the world and the human race.

    NAME: Paretron 3000
    JOB: An extra parent
    One of the amazing things about my robot is that it is a multifunctional one. This means that it can not only do one job but can do multiple ones. It is supposed to do the jobs mums usually daily like home chores, dropping children off , picking them from school and helping them with their studies . This will no doubt alleviate the pressure and lighten the heavy burden om mums' shoulders and allow them to have more time for themselves . Nevertheless, mums can still enjoy those intimate moments with their kids whenever they or their children desire. Besides, my Paretron 3000 will always step up whenever asked to do so. Unlike mums, it will never be tired, bored, irritated or lose temper when the kids behave childishly like not focusing and then asking for explanation over and over again. My robot is also super speedy; it can perform a lot of tasks in a very short time. Another extra special thing about my robot is that it is equipped with a section in his head which makes him not only capable of listening but also able to show sympathy and say comforting words and even hugging. Hence a child can talk with his robots about things that he doesn't want to share with his mum and the robot will give him the best advice.

    1. tom Tom @ the BNC
      consistent_starfruit's comment 09 Nov 2020

      I think it's also forgivable to let people be bored, irritated and lose their temper! And as you said this can happen if a child does not focus and asks things over and over again, are these kind of reactions a good thing to help the child learn to improve?

    My robot would be called AI 5000
    What it can do is tell you answers to any question you and it is a talking calculator. It can scan for anything precious like jewelry and metal like sliver, gold, steel and copper. This robot will also be able to hover around to look for criminals and people who have not done good to the public.
    I have another idea for Grabinator 9000
    It can pull anything at anytime, it uses solar energy to run and helps people be neat.

    This is my view, hope you consider.

    My robot is going to have to be a multi-tasker and you will be able to program it to do certain things that all relate to echoer. My robot is going to be a presidential election helper. As you know, there is a major presidential election going on in the United States and some people (me included) are getting a bit annoyed because they are taking a while to count and re-count votes in some of the remaining states (at this time they are: North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada and Alaska) Nevada being one of the most slow counting, vital states. My robot will help not only counting the votes but it will be able to do all the checks in a time much faster time than even a group of humans. It could also be programmed to do anything else that is needed to be done fast in the election.

    Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed.

    OK, it was hard but I finally managed to get an idea, The Astrobot! If you program it right it'll launch little cameras into space and on planets in light speed, then the cameras will take a sample of the planet or asteroid and bring it back! But if you program it wrong then it it'll destroy the planet or asteroid you launched the cameras on!

    It's job is to do magic tricks on stage (is that even a job?)
    It is a tan coloured robot and it has a wisard's hat, shoes and cape.
    It would do a better job than a human because he could do thing humans can't, he won't get the trick wrong and he won't get hurt if he misses a jump or something.

    My robot would be the greatest and most sophisticated ANDROID in the world.
    It would work as a nurse/doctor most of the time but could perfectly capable of doing any other job without having to do any training for it.
    It cold be
    .a judge without going to law school
    .an osteopath without going to a university or a study school for it
    and many other things as well.
    As it works as a doctor most of the time, as well as it being a highly sophisticated android, it would be clever enough to have a cure for the Corona virus and many other uncured diseases, illnesses or conditions that were thought to be incurable!
    (it would also be the only ever kind of robot to pass for a human.)
    It would fight against racism and discrimination and bring the world to peace and justice.
    It would come in any gender and act just like a human, and only be able to perish of old age.(yes, it would be able to age)
    It would be the most spectacular piece of Artificial Intelligence ever!

    Having trouble with cleaning? This incredibly awesome cleaning robot can literally clean anything. His name is Clean-O-Bot. All you have to say to activate it is say "Clean-O-Bot, clean the living room windows. " yes sir/madam."In a minute boom your, your window is as good as new. Have to clean a billion dishes, " Clean-O-Bot, Clean the dishes plz." In 2 minutes you are ready to have a lovely dinner. Need to mop the floor super fast for a party, "Clean-O-Bot Mop the floor as fast as possible" "As you wish." So all you have to do is say his name and what you want to clean. It is even possible to ask him to clean the whole house. You do need to charge him from time to time and his charger is the same as baymax's from the Big Hero 6 movie. Hope you enjoy your life with him. thanks

    My robot is called Florence, named after Florence Nightingale, because she is a nurse that can heal anyone. She works at the NHS and is twice as fast as a human when it comes to saving lives and very efficient. She is better than humans because she can't be passed on a disease or pass a disease herself. She doesn't need a break because she is powered by solar energy (and at night she stores some like camels store water in their humps) and can't be broken or even cracked because she is made of graphene (the strongest substance in the world) or mercury (a liquid metal, so if someone throws something at her, it will go through her). Inside her there is a toolbox , filled with nursing equipment, wheels and a bed that come out on emergencies; she can replace an ambulance.

    My robot would be called Fair Rules 300.
    He would be firm and strict and would look on the elections (although this year's debates have finished, maybe when the next elections come anywhere). He would be able to duplicate himself and visit events that needed judging. He would always be fair and would make the world a safer place. He would even have a lie detector!
    He would be better than humans because he would always know who was telling the truth, he would never stick up for people who were guilty and would definitely, always play fair.

      Good idea ethical_performance,
      How would your robot be better than a human?
      Also, what is your robots name? Maybe it could be cultural?

    My robot would be a miner and its name will be the Rockmelter 2596 Edition. It will have rock corers - a bit like apple corers - for arms, an indestructible outside, and stone-pulverising eyes that melt rock in an instant. This rock will do a better job than humans because of their indestructibility. Humans may hurt themselves when mining, but this contraption will be fine, even working in the hardest conditions, despite the fact that it is only the size of a well-fed house cat!

    Hi BNC
    Meticulous_twilight here.
    I found this session very interesting. here is my robot i have created.
    Name: Mr cleaner upper
    His job is cleaning up the environment and to stop pollution. he also saves animals if they are injured or sick.
    he would be better at this than a human because he spends his whole time doing this and he has a very big heart, especially for the animals and nature.

    My robot is a life guard. His name is Jerald 6000. He is waterproof and he has a metal 6 pack. He would be saving people if they are drowning, he has very good hearing and very good eyesight. He is a doctor as well and when he has saved people he gets his medical stuff out and helps people. He can bandage people up in a second. When someone is injured, he does funny jokes and sings songs and raps to make people chuckle and makes people feel better. Jerald 6000 will be at the beach and at the swimming pool.

    My robot is called DR Robocov- 19
    It's job would be a doctor.
    It would be especially good at treating covid-19 patients because it can move freely across the hospital ward without catching the virus. It would also have many hands which allows it to perform many tasks at a time, up to 8 since it has 8 arms.
    It is very ,very fast that everyday each robot can treat at least 8OO patients. It can also give many medications to patients at the same time. It can also carry loads of ventilators to patients that have breathing problems. It also has a ventilator inside it. My robot can also perform emergency operations. In addition to this, it can read body temperatures and measure blood pressures just by looking at the patient. The reason I think my robot would be good at helping Covid-19 patients is because the robot wouldn't need any masks, gloves or hand sanitizers.

    My robot would be:
    Name: Electron 2000
    Occupation: Technological Architect. It fixes systems, breaches hacking processes, and can make safe softwares and apps.
    Why I think it would be better than a human: There are several reasons, but one is that since technology and electricity was discovered, it is almost as if there is a second world. People now store a lot of information in devices, and hackers are common. The Police can find it difficult to capture all the villains in the real world, let alone the viral ones-and that's where Electron would come in handy!
    Another one would be:
    Name: Imminent
    Occupation: Police officer. It tracks down crooks, and corners them. Doesn't use the attacking part.
    Why I think that it will be better than a human: The robot is made from bulletproof steel and is less of a risk than sending humans for the job–No beating lives will be taken. The model also would have grappling arms, ideal for both combat and climbing. They also can be traded, and are good at tracking other things. If it is also virally, they can jam the system.
    Thank you!

    It does the job of a doctor. My robot would be better than a human as, if a person is injured or sick he can easily calm them, can fix any bones. If a person says they feel sick or say they are injured but they don't know where/why then he would be able to detect why they feel sick or where they are injured.

    Hi my robot would be called Getty and would be a locater so she can locate things if you loos them like if they-the teachers lost their phone the robot could find it , she is also really good at art and drawing if the teachers or students would like a drawing to motivate them to learn they can just press a separate button. It would live in are school in the office and can be connected with a button which would be in each classroom with like a small screen to tell the Getty what she would need to find or what they would like her to draw for either the class of teachers/insistence that are in each class. she would also be the cook for all years, her cooking is so good she could even go on the British bake of making sure the food is delicious and healthy.Getty would also help the teachers when needed they would also be good because they would be like humans but without breathing so better with covid-19.If needed she could also be the cleaner for when the children have gone home .She could also make the lessons for the next day in the evening so teachers can focus on something else in the morning.

    Are you tired of country leaders fighting ?
    Constantly afraid of war lurking around the corner ?

    Well have no fear ! Here at Harrods, our best business men have invented the all new PeaceMakerXC1. Now folks, you're probably thinking ‘ this is just another pointless ad where I buy something that does a job I could do myself.’ Well , you are wrong - no human could cope with this tricky job , not even a therapist could stay calm when they know if they fail their job the world is at stake. However, a robot can do it all. This bad boy - or should I say ‘bad bot ‘ flies around the world and consults country leaders with their big decisions - this way no war will begin and there will be huge smiles and great country relationships for miles ! Afraid that France will get into a feud with England ? No problem, just summon the PeaceMakerXC1 and it will put on its beret and stick on a moustache and change its language AND before you know it , President Macron's mind will go from uncertainty to rainbows and unicorns! When the PeaceMakerXC1 has fulfilled its duties , from Jupiter you will be able to see a huge rainbow form on our planet . Within five minutes of its work , you will have forgotten a time of frowns, arguments and sadness in the world.
    So I implore you , buy the wondrous PeaceMakerXC1 for just £50.99 . The price may seem high , but the uses are infinite………
    Terms and conditions apply
    You will have to supply the bot with the traditional attire of each country so it can fit in and work its wonders.

    My robot's name would be SPY 1000

    occupation: spy

    I think it would be better than a human since it could probably stay in disguise for much longer and SPY 1000 can scan things and change to those things it scans. I don't want it too take up all the other spies jobs, human wise, so I decided it would be human friendly and maybe thinks like a human too as well as working along side with humans (teams.) For this it would have to be cooperative and respectful too for humans since if it would work along side humans it would have to try and put itself in their positions. SPY 1000 shall have feelings and emotions. However, it can not been hacked or hurt in any way since it's defense system to hacking is extreme. It can not be hurt since it would be made out of titanium and diamond and other strong scrap materials.

    - It cannot feel physical pain so it can keep on working.
    - It does not require pay, that leave more money to spend on better materials and tools.
    - If it does break then humans get the less dangerous job of fixing them.

    My robot is called doctor robo
    My robot works as a doctor helping to cure people much more quickly and you can have lots more robot workers to do there job and can work with more people than just one person.
    It is better than a human because You could only need one person to do there job as for humans you could need more than to make sure to get it right but with the robots they will have that knowledge stuck into there heads making it much more efficient when having to do a hard surgery for humans. You can also make robots comforting so that if anybody is scared or worried than the robot can help them to feel more relaxed or less worried. It can be easy to get the knowledge into the robot because you would only need to update it and add knowledge into it and you can update it to the right surgeries or the right cures to new viruses.
    It can be really helpful because it can not catch any illness or viruses that could affect humans and would cause major problems as for robots they can not catch them and carry on working fine helping to save lives which would be really helpful in the covid-19 situation.

    Skill: She can teach any language in under 2 hours
    Features: Adanna would have human like features (a realistic face and body). The only difference is that she can teach any or every language in the world! She would start off by teaching the very basics of the language and then move on to more advanced things, for example:
    - phrases
    -greetings
    -sentences
    How is this better than what a human could do?
    She could do this better than a human because of the advanced techniques she uses. It would take a long time for a person to teach a language and it could take years to learn it but Adanna can teach a language in 2 hours or less. This would make it simpler for a person to start learning a new language

    If I was to create a robot, I would have called it SPASTA standing for:
    • Stop
    • Poaching
    • And
    • Save
    • The
    • Animals

    It would do the job of a game keeper. The things that will make it fit for the job would be:
    - A waterproof outer covering (so it doesn’t get ruined in the rain)
    - A full 360° camera that can spot anything
    - A motion detector
    - An emergency kit for animals
    - An emergency caller ( if a wounded animal is found )
    - Taser ( to tase poachers if they attack an animal )
    - Automatic alert that will alert police

    A robot as a gamekeeper is much better than a human one because it will be able to spot small movements and easily find poachers hiding in the bushes and also because it the robot get damaged no human shall lose a life.
    That is my robot SPASTA.

    Hello, My robot would be called Geoff. His occupation would be a police officer. Here are a few reasons why i think that geoff is fit for the job:
    -He doesn't need necessary items that humans would need such as food, sleep, water etc.
    -He would have a 360* camera that can spot almost anything within 100 metres
    -He would also have a camouflage setting that when it is activated, he looks almost just like a human!
    -Robots are also very good crime fighting tools and will have separate settings fixed on to him on how aggressive he is and how important it is to catch the "bad guys".
    - Robots are also more precise than humans so have less chance of making mistakes.
    -Geoff would have very strong metal used to protect him incase the "bad guys" get over the top or agressieve
    - And finally he would be able to track down and get to the crime much quicker depending on his speed setting.

    I hope you like the sound of my robot geoff,

    My robots name is glow. My robot helps with the environment and picks up litter inside the house. She goes through your bins and keeps and plastic that can't be recycled in your house and makes new thing such as : organisers, boxes and many more useful things to help save the planet. When no-one is home he has a camera to keep an watchful eye out and goes out to the beach and goes in the water (it's waterproof ) and swims around collecting any litter in the ocean.
    I think the planet really needs a robot like this.
    Don't worry comes with instructions!
    Thank you!!

    My robot will be called Z-Verna 3.52a

    It does the job of a...food delivery person! My robot will be able to deliver people food quickly, safely and efficiently, possibly replacing the human food delivery person. The design is a small rectangle with an antenna and 4 wheels, which can go up to a maximum of 40mph. My robot will be able to notice and do:
    - Changes in the temperature of food, it also has a heater which will warm up food if it notices it gets too cold and attempt to cool down the box containing the food if it gets too warm. Allowing it to save food to you in the perfect temperature.
    - Have a sensor to stop if there is either a human walking past (if it goes on a pavement) or traffic on the road.
    - Will be able to scan street names and door numbers on its own without a control so it has a 98% accuracy rate for finding the correct place to deliver food.
    - If the robot is destroyed eg. for theft. It will alarm like a car.
    - To add to that, it has a feature where it will begin to move quickly automatically if it senses movement (in the shape of a foot or a hand coming to grab it whilst its still trying to make its way.
    - The box containing the food automatically opens once it scans a face and recognises it through their app called VernaDeliveries, where you scan your face before the payment goes through, so it makes it safer when it only opens when it recognises a face.

Doctors will not need to help people with Covid 19 because Covie can help 100 people get rid of Covid 19 in one minute! That is impressive! Covie will defeat Covid 19 once and for all. She will probably take over most of the hospitals by how impressive she is with how fast she could help people get rid of Covid 19.

They help the nurses by giving the right equipment to treat a patient to the nurse and also take important phone calls. This robot would really help nurses so they can do other things and there will be more nurses in hospitals which is good. Also, they could be trained or specifically designed to treat patients just like nurses and the waiting lists for patients would not be as long.

    Robots can work for restaurants, car manufacturers, factories, and lots of other jobs.
    They can also help disabled people as well. They can go to places humans can't, they can be put in danger, they don't need to sleep, eat, drink, go to the toilet, or take breaks because they are worn out. They just need either new batteries or charge. They can entertain children too for example. Cozmo, Boxer, and botsies.

    It is better at its job than humans because when people are in desperate need of a docter they would need to take them to the hospital and that could take some time especialy if whats happening is urgent.
    The disadvanteges of this is that it may break down or if it gets wet it may not function properly in an emergancy.

    My robot names would be called ECO because it is designed to clean up after everyone on the streets. It would be better than humans because it would disintegrate the rubbish so it has more room to pick up more and then it would dispose of the rubbish in some fire that is attached to the body of the robot in a little compartment. It is to help the litter pickers and get the job done quicker to sort out the world faster.
    My robot would be able to function on its own without help of humans and it wouldn’t need a bin or a litter picker it would have a hoover as an arm to hover up all the rubbish, it would also have a machine inside of it that disintegrates the rubbish and the rubbish transports its way through the other arm of the robot into a fire compartment that is on the side of the robot. It would also sort out the rubbish into recycling and then rubbish and the recycling gets compressed and put into one half of the robot. My robot is good for the environment in more ways than the one like; it wouldn’t pollute the earth, it would clean up the earth and it would dispose of the rubbish in an ECO friendly way as not to harm the planet.
