Sumo suits will always create excitement and fun wherever they are used.

Gil Streets, chairman of the trustees of Beaminster Youth Club, said: “We are extremely grateful to Bridport Round Table for the gift of these sumo wrestling suit and safety mat.
“It extends the range of activities that we can offer to our members and gives another sporting event we can do both inside the club and at future outdoor events.”
The group presented the youth club with a cheque for £570 to cover the cost of the suits.
Henry Utteridge, a member of Bridport Round Table, said: “It is great to see the funds we raise being put to good use and for such a worthwhile cause.
“The children at Beaminster Youth Centre were really engaged and enjoying the suits – it is clear the children will have a bouncing time!”
Paula Buxton, the youth club manager, thanked the Round Table for their generous donation.
She said: “It is always lovely to have the support of local organisations and makes the work we do worthwhile when we see how much the children and young people enjoy using the equipment.”

McGinn started this group with roughly 40 to 50 students investing their own time and money on building small robots to sumo wrestle each other. By working on these robots, the gap between the students and McGinn’s knowledge started to decrease. The goal behind all of this was to build robots that were as sophisticated as possible to solve real world social problems.

The Sii (“Socially Intelligent Interface”) robot is a snapshot into what McGinn thinks can be achieved, as well as a sneak peek into how these robots should look and move. The current model has a 3D-printed head and LCD screens for a mouth, which are used to convey a number of emotions. As robotics is such a new area in engineering, it’s not just the maths and the physics that build the robots. It’s also down to the psychology behind how humans interact with robots. Understanding human psychology is essential for the design of these assistive robots.
