Welcome to the official site for Team tOBOR!
Use the sidebar to navigate to robot pages and event reports

Team tOBOR Combat Robotics was created in 2004 by Dan Toborowski. I have always been fascinated by engineering and robotics and became obsessed with the sport of robotic combat after seeing the television show BattleBots. This page has been created to showcase some of my creations, provide useful information and website links to other builders, and to offer detailed event reports. I hope you can use this site to learn more about this exciting sport. Feel free to contact me directly with questions or comments.


  • (11/3/10) - iHobby Expo and Marble Maze!
    Sorry for the lack of any recent updates but I've finally managed to add pictures of the V2.0 upgraded Marble Maze and pictures from the 2010 iHobby Expo I brought the new maze to. I'm hoping to add a full build report on the maze upgrade shortly but definitely plan to get a video uploaded this coming weekend.

  • (6/13/10) - MicroRAX
    I've added a new page that documents my experimentation with MicroRAX, a new miniature version of t-slot extruded aluminum. I plan to use these parts in most of my projects and will add pictures and information to the MicroRAX page on my site to show some of the neat things that MicroRAX makes possible.

  • (10/29/09) - iHobby Expo!
    This past weekend I attended the iHobby Expo in Rosemont, IL and brought along several robots including the Marble Maze. This event was a blast and I look forward to next year's expo! I'll be updating the Marble Maze page soon to reflect the latest updates and video to show the maze's complete operation as seen at the show. For now check out the page I created for the iHobby Expo which features several pictures from the event.

  • (8/9/09) Marble Maze
    I've created a new page to document the construction of my latest project; an electronic 2-axis marble maze platform. While this project is still under construction, I've put together several pictures and information about my current progress which can be found here.

  • (5/17/09) RFID Door Opener Project Report
    I recently finished building an RFID door opener for my apartment. For a detailed description of the design, components, operation, and code, visit the project report web page. This is the first to be added to my new "Other Projects" section of the the Team tOBOR website. Check back for more non-robotic combat projects I'm working on.
