Gen comes from Gendema, a bulgarian late 80s rock band, popular with its song about pedalos.
The robot uses two EV3 Large motors to move, but instead of wheels it uses four-legged paddles, attached to the motors. This makes it look like a pedalo. Additionally it slides on the ground much like a real pedalo on the water.
Because of the strange mechanism of movement, the robot has a gyro sensor to help it keep a straight line.
