U.R.O., standing for Unidentified Rotating Object, was a robot from West Sussex that fought in the Seventh Wars. It was an invertible, tyre-shaped robot with a 2.5 kg, thin cutting disc that acted as a full body spinner, a mix between the designs of The Revolutionist and Corkscrew Two, summarised by Jonathan Pearce as "high mass, bi-directional, circumferential, 2.5kg disc". It was entered by Team M.I.B.O. (Men in Black Overalls).

Robot History

Series 7

Fourth seed Bigger Brother flipped U.R.O. onto Refbot's ram, leaving it pinned there. Once it was shaken loose, U.R.O fled from its opponents, spinning feebly, before it was rammed by Bigger Brother and pushed aside. It was too wide for Bigger Brother to flip completely over initially, but it then succeeded in flipping U.R.O. into the CPZ several times. From there, it appeared to lose mobility. Sergeant Bash bit into U.R.O.'s shell, peeling part away as Refbot counted it out. Suddenly, U.R.O. regained mobility and slid feebly towards Bigger Brother and Colossus, and ended up in the pit.
