This is a thread for Google Lunar X PRIZE rocket rover ideas. Please post video examples or diagrams whenever possible.

Here is a new video of Der Wienerrover:

And here is a special message to Nicky J Rocket Girl from the Wienerrover:

A thread for GLXP rovers?
Do you believe that GLXP can be won with miserably designed toys like "Der Wienerrover"?

Actually, early on I predicted that a Radioshack toy would be able to win the contest. And now for less that $70 US I believe I may have found a candidate. It looks kind of like Wall-E.

But as to your more specific question, all I can say is that after my Fourth of July test of the Wienerrover, there have been no more videos of X PRIZE rovers (unless you count team Selene's Oxyhydrogen rover, aka Mosquitorover). So it looks like the other teams have been humbled extensively.

Also, the Wienerrover is not a miserably designed toy. It is actually the product of a symphony of engineering subtleties.

Fortunately you are lucky.
A forum just right for brilliant space enthusiasts does exist.
Forum for people with unconventional ideas
Present your rover there and ask the forum members, what they think about it.

Excuse me, but did I accidentally drop in on a forum for serious scientists? :shock:
