    That 4 legged robot has got some moves. How cool was that?

    Last Saturday (1/05) all 3500 FRC teams saw the game they will be playing this year for the first time. Here is the same video we all saw:



    From that moment we all have 46 days to build a robot to play this game. Back into sleep deprivation mode!

    Looks tricky for sure! So you going autonomous, or camera on your robot?

    We will almost certainly go autonomous because we have a reputation for doing it well. The machine usually does what it's supposed to do. The kids... sometimes not so much.

    Got to say that the one time I met you and your team when you qualified to go to the St. Louis event is the ONLY time I've been around that many teenagers and felt completely safe [great bunch of kids]! Not so much in the parking lot on the north side of the Edward Jone's Dome...that part of town scares the hell out of me! :behindsofa:

    The World Championship has been moved to Detroit. It's OK in the square mile of downtown, but probably worse than St. Louis just outside that.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

    Yah, just keep thinking that.
    Click your heels together 3 times and say "there's no place like home, there's no place like home...…"

    Gonna be difficult to realign after the fall from the hab. Vision processing will be key.
