One of our team members, cough me cough has stacked 14 boxes in a room. He is an ANIMAL. So truthfully, how many can your robots stack?

All of the bins on the field... and more.

in theory any stacker could go as high as they wanted to.... so i'm going to say every box on the field if we really wanted to, or untill gravity got angry at us

We've taken gravity into account.

Somewhere bnetween 0 and infinity, It all depends on everything else:D

well since construction hasnt been completed yet (we finished 90% of construction in one 12 hour day) we cant tell for sure, but I think we will effectivley be able stack anything between 2-5 reliably and 5-8 while it may fall, and beyond that is a coinflip.

we can stack up to about 6 comfortably. since we carry them around with us, and we have a sheath on our bot that protects them as we move, a stack of any more than six is liable to topple if we make a sharp turn.

but hey, if we're sitting still, and feeding in the boxes by hand, then the sky (or at least the power of the van door motor) is the limit.

Our robot can stack at least 5... probably more.. but as another person mentioned taking into account gravity and movement i dont really know, as our robot isnt moving quite yet, but we are working on it. Just using our pneumatics now, we can lift 6, but thats all the boxes we have so it may be able to do more :D

Our robot is a drive train. We can stack zero boxes. We're pretty good at knocking them down, though!

We can stack infinate boxes. At least untill the laws of nature and physics caught up with us.

Assuming the supernatural possibilities and a blatant disregard for the laws of physics and the natural world, we could probably stack all the boxes in the world.

But, if you're talking real-world here, I'll have to get back to you when we have something on the bot that moves.

We tested yesterday and could stack 10 comfortably.

Wow, it only took about two minutes for somebody to get that. I'm such a comic...

hmmmm. i'm trying to code a stabilizing sys for our bot but after that it should be able to stack more than 60 boxes :D

log 1 = 0
5(0) = 0
0^3 = 0

Vincent Chan

log 1=0
5*0=0
0^3=0

Therefore, he said 0 in a very 'funny' way.

Nerd humor, I guess. :D (But who am I to judge? I understood it...)

ummm thought it is great to breag about how tall your robot is, building a stack 25 high can fall over by one tap of your own or an opponets robot. like ours:D
