    Absolutely and a Great challenge for our kids of tomorrow. My company sponsers several teams from MIT to high schools. We cut any part or vision the kids have to inspire them to succeed. We even won the prize (honor) with Aviation HS in Des Moines WA. Great kids and a lot of fun.

    :)I work at Blue Bird, I can remember they use robotics to make a passage seat, weld tube to tube, and also bend the tube. :rolleyes:

    We have a pretty ambitious company sponsored robotics club [team] here at Boeing. I believe their last 'challenge' was to autonomously maneuver a Jeep Cherokee through an off-road obstacle course. Mainly younger engineers, very innovative..pretty cool. The company itself creates robots that you could consider, well, a dating service of sorts. It matches Muslim Extremists with their 72 virgins. ;)

    As Ron White said, "B.S. Give me 72 slutty bitches who know what they're doing."

    I'm a mentor for FRC Team 230 from Shelton, CT. My profile picture is from last year's World Championship in St. Louis.

    Let the sleep deprivation begin!

    Nice! I'm a part of 1731 from Marshall, VA. We were in St. Louis last year as well.
    Good times...
    Be sure to recycle your litter!;)

    What we really need are robotic human beings that are programmed not to going around killing each other.

    After last year's exciting defensive slug-fest, this game will be like watching an Amazon warehouse web-cam.
