I was wondering if anybody could clarify what colours would confuse the opponent's vision system? I'm having difficulties finding this if it's on the forums somewhere.
The colors that the camera would be looking for are red, blue, green, and yellow. The camera will be calibrated to the correct color but if your robot is close to the same color you may confuse someones camera. The is no rule against how to paint your robot, but at the competition you cannot change the robot's color depending on which alliance you are on or for any other reason. Making your robot a certain color to purposely to mess up someones camera is technically allowed (but does not fit under "gracious professionalism").
You have to remember, like Joe Ross said, would you want your alliance partners confusing you with a vision tetra, goal, or loading station?
