Hey, my team is looking for a name for our robot. I was wondering if any of you guys had any creative names for us that you aren't going to use. :)

If you want to know, here are some details about us:
Team name: Digital Fusion
Team number: 1317
Basic robot design: We have a giant hopper for catching balls at the startup and an arm for doing the chin-up/knocking the bonus (10 pt.) ball off of its tee.

So, if anybody has the perfect name, feel free to share it. :D

Ahh, online comic bliss. Only makes sense if you read the comics, but hey.

The big choice is if you want to keep the name an inside joke or something everyone can understand.

15 l33tb0t t00 l33t 4 j00??

Last year, we named our robot Opportunity Knocks. The announcer during Curie Qualifying rounds called our robot an 'Evil Machine'. The crowd liked it, it picked up, it fit the robot, so we because Team 25 and their Evil Machine. Sometimes, what you name the bot won't be what it goes by. Try to figure out what the robot will do, and pick an appropriate name. Our 2000 robot was called Cradle Robber for its defensive strategy. 2003 was Evil Machine because of its oftentimes notoriously evil defensive strategy. Pick something catchy, and easy to remember, but make it match the robot and the game you play.

Last year our robots name was

"Driver Has Less Than $25"

which was a good name, because it was true. (seriously!)
