- the risky and elegant design
- the documentation and in-depth discussions regarding the risks of the design
- what they are doing for this game, encouraging curiosity, adventure, integrity, and good sportsmanship - all in Week 1
- what they are doing for the Central Texas region - bringing their A game to a 2nd year Regional and sharing that A game with the veteran teams and rookie teams, alike - all the while, dealing with the glaring spotlight and the impact of the decision regarding their design

And these are just the aspects of the legend that I've thought about since their video release and throughout yesterday and today. I can't wait to follow them throughout their competition season and to celebrate with them as they go.

We are all very lucky to have FRC 118, the Robonauts, ready to rumble this 2012 FRC season. It's incredible.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

This is an awesome robot. I can see how this can be ruled illegal, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this robot can do this. Pure Awesome!

Way to go 118!!

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Will 118 ever post CAD from this robot... or any other previous 'bot?

I am just getting started in Solidworks and just generally I would like to look at it for about 9 and a half YEARS in absolute amazement...!

It was absolute liquid art to see at the Alamo Regional this weekend... Larger than life. I will remember it quite fondly for the rest of mine!

Thx for the beauty, the inspiration, the action, and the intrigue! So it ended with some bad luck, but you guys won so SOOOO much more!!!

thx, again!

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

I keep coming back to watch this video and show it to coworkers every few days. It's led me to feel that FIRST should make a marketing-based award for best launch video, with the deadline 1 week after build stop day. Forget hiring a professional production crew; FIRST already has the talent in their program. With YouTube, phone video cameras, and even built-in Windows Movie Maker we could get some pretty good videography that FIRST can use to spread its message.

Why is this video so good? It tugs at the emotional side of any nerd who loved watching a shuttle launch. It's simultaneously inspiring and intimidating to other FRC teams. Finally, the music doesn't cater to any single genre of music-lovers.

I agree it's a good robot -- but it's an even better video.

Great idea ! Adding a video award at the end of build season would be a great way to encourage teams to document their progress.

Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely. I too, have watched, and rewatched both this years and last years videos from them and feel they set the standard (for many things, but right now I mean video production). I think an award to give both recognition and incentive to this would be perfect!

speaking of videos, anyone have a video of this mechanism being used with other robots?

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Since this thread is up, I would like to submit a formal request to the robonauts for any other video footage they might have of the bridge mechanism in opporation. It would be a shame if 5 seconds of video is all the CD community gets to see of your amazing device. Especially after all the hard work put into its design and construction.

All in favor say I.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

I!

I'm also interested in your vision control. I read about you guys using Beaglebone and OpenCV. I'm actually doing something similar at my workplace, though we're using an Android instead of Beaglebone.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Ever since it first came out, I've been showing this video to family and co-workers and linking to it on other forums as an introduction to FIRST. Our team is participating in a NASA demo at Busch Gardens this weekend, and we may even show it there. Adding an award for best robot intro video is a fantastic idea.

Here's some short clips from testing during week 6.

http://youtu.be/0plwV3lCZE4

The power take off driving mechanism wasn't 100% ready for ship, so we modified the end effector to a simpler design for Alamo which would only hang. (There's a few pictures of this in action at the end). We had plans to refine the driving feature afterwards, but there was obviously no need.

This mechanism proved to be one of the toughest design challenges The Robonauts have ever undertaken. We learned a lot from the attempt and had a fun time with it regardless of the end results.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Thanks for sharing Justin.
You folks definitely demonstrate awesome engineering that inspires many here in the FIRST community.

Easily my favorite robot of the year.
