WatchTower is a pretty self-explanatory robot. It detects intruders by sensing the vibrations they make while walking or digging beneath it. For this purpose, it uses a Gyro sensor, which could be incredibly sensitive under the right circumstances. The Ultrasonic sensor, that sits on top of a medium motor starts locating the intruder when the Gyro sensor detects it.

Susan comes from Sue, which is the name of the largest complete specimen of T-Rexes.
Mark comes from Marc Bolan, who is the lead singer/gutarist of the band T-Rex.
The robot is made to resemble a T-Rex(Susan) chasing a car(Mark).
The T-Rex uses a Large motor to go forward and backward. The other Large motor is used for the car, which resembles a very simple 4 wheel vechicle. The task for this robot is for Susan to spot Mark using the current power option of the motor rotation sensor. Because T-Rexes can not spot you if you are moving very slow, Mark tries to move really slow, so that he is not spotted!

Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpius constellation.
The robot's main purpose is to show two different grabbing mechanisms - one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical pincer uses a medium motor and the horizontal pincer uses a large motor. Additionally the robot has a sting mechanism which uses another large motor. For a head it uses an EV3 ultrasonic sensor. With the sensor, the robot can sense when the prey is close enough for a suprise attack.

A nice little robot, that can tell if there is anything on top of it. It only uses one touch sensor. The idea of the robot is to be used in classes with students to explore different interesting security options. This robot in particular could detect when the object place on it is "stollen". Ever watch Indiana Jones? :)
