[FTC]: FTC 2012-2013 Game Hints

The first game hint has finally arrived. The game hint was posted on the FTC blog at http://firsttechchallenge.blogspot.c...game-time.html.

The first game hint is supposedly a bus...
http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/at...5&d=1345230458

What do you guys think? What kind of make/model is the bus and what can it mean?

"lift across"...? Hmm.

And whenever I see a bus, I think "under the bus". So... Maybe robots have to go underneath something?

Re: [FTC]: FTC 2012-2013 Game Hints

From what I see on other posts, lifting, ring'ing, and transporting. Doesn't this sound like Logo Motion?

You have to catch something perhaps?

Re: [FTC]: FTC 2012-2013 Game Hints

I personally like the "under the bus" idea as I see where it comes from. And I also like the transporting idea as well. Both are great!... well, all ideas are great but I like those two the best. But again... who knows!

Re: [FTC]: FTC 2012-2013 Game Hints

Here I go:
Back from "summer vacation". They were in a Volkswagen.
Volkswagen are German.
German summer holidays include "assumption day" in which Mary ascended into heaven. You could say she "climbed there"
They "caught a lift" in the VW.

Something to do with lifting and/or climbing.

That's what I think.

Re: [FTC]: FTC 2012-2013 Game Hints

so the bus is a vw transporter and they said they caught a lift on the robobus,
so if you type in "Volkswagen Transporter robot bus" on google, http://www.collectablescorner1.com/s...-Robots/Detail comes up, maybe it has something to do with the movie robots

There is a new hint:
http://firsttechchallenge.blogspot.c...ost-there.html

I am thinking a Logomotion (FRC 2011) Overdrive (FRC 2010) hybrid.

I see poles that have potential to be used for climbing!
