Gilbert was a heavyweight robot designed by Team 404Robotics which was designed with the intention of competing in BattleBots World Championship VI.

It was a two-wheel drive, invertible robot armed with a single-tooth vertical spinning disk mounted between two octagonal-shaped drive pods. Towards the rear was a wedge-shaped stabilizer which would allow Gilbert to drive. Very little is known about Gilbert's intended construction beyond its exterior design.

"Was going to apply with a bot named Gilbert. A lack of resources, time, and no formal application before the deadline were what inevitably caused me to just wait until next year."
— Team 404Robotics on Reddit.[1]

Gilbert's application was ultimately not submitted in time and the robot would never see completion. In June 2021, Team 404Robotics posted an image of the CAD file to Reddit.[2]

Outside BattleBots[]

Team 404Robotics have built numerous smaller weight class robots, notably antweight 841 , plastic antweight Arrhythmia and Minor Inconvenience.
