I'm not entirely sure - the red bridge was a couple inches off the ground, and the robots were having some trouble getting up it. More pertinently, the red alliance almost certainly would have won that match even if they hadn't balanced, so they would have had reason to be upset if they had lost the rematch... it was much closer, but ultimately they did win.

Re: Roomba Match

On a similar note, every so often, matches get started with one of the field gates open, sometimes with a ramp deployed, sometimes with the protective cover dislodged.

It happened once at SVR this year, and I've seen it in the past elsewhere.

Re: Roomba Match

You know back in my day we had an upright vacuum called the Placebo Bot.

It actually did drive around the field intentionally when the matches were on going.

I'd like to see someone loose a full size Hoover.

You kids and your miniaturization!

Hobbles out on my cane.

Re: Roomba Match

Next year they should make Roombas the game piece. They're not very effective at vacuuming the rug that's for sure.

Some sort of mobile goal on top of a Roomba that is driving around the floor would be hilarious.

Re: Roomba Match

Make a fake Roomba charger infrared beacon and get the Roombas to balance the bridge with you.
