13 June 2012, Newcastle, NSW, Australia - Talentenclub’s Talentenbot equipped with multi-directional Rotacaster omniwheels won the Dutch Robocup Junior championships and qualified for the World Championships in Eindhoven next year.


Facing plenty of competition, using the Rotacaster omniwheels proved to be a massive tactical advantage. The superior grip of their Rotacaster wheels proved to be too much for their opponents who were simply pushed aside with little effort.

The wheel used was from Rotacaster's 48mm wheel range with a dedicated Lego® Mindstorms® NXT compatible hub, enabling the direct application without further modification. 

Rotacaster managing director Peter McKinnon said “I congratulate the young team and look forward to the World Championships in Eindhoven”.
