i have some more thoughts after re-reading this. i think that the blue line in the middle will be a river which might explain the slip part. and i think that u can't cross this river and u have to use an arm or something to grab different colored fish on the other side held down by Velcro or something sticky which might go with the peeling part. and about the bunch part.. maybe if u can grab more than on fish at a time u get more points? now i have no idea about the banana....maybe there could be some banana like obstacles on the field?

Re: pic: 2007 Game Hint?

I don't think a water game will happen for the following reasons:

A) Practice fields would be INSANELY hard to construct, because in addition to the field elements, teams would have to basically build a POOL to test their robot in.

B) It occurs to me that dripping wet robots being constantly wheeled to and from the field would create an enormous wet floor hazard throughout the pits.

C) Aside from the obvious problems of robots sinking and then needing their entire electrical system replaced, the water would quickly become polluted with grease and who knows what else. Besides the "yuck" factor, how would FIRST dispose of this water after the event?

D) Considering how much damage was done to the fields this year, I shudder to think what could happen with a water filled field. (Tsunami!! )

an all HDPE floor would be awsome. If they had that, I think it would be the first year since 1992 that they wouldn't have carpeting as the main field cover...

Re: pic: 2007 Game Hint?

HOW DID THE WATER IDEA GET STARTED???
I noticed that everyone here is talking about a water based challenge sometime in the future. Why is this? There must have been some rumor or story that I never heard about. I really would like to know why everyone seems to take this idea so seriously. I'm not criticizing either FIRST or any one individual. I just really want to know the reason why WATER is being anticipated.

What I would like someone to do is to reply to this on this post and include links to other threads within this forum where I may find the story behind the idea of the water based challenge.

Re: pic: 2007 Game Hint?

Water can not be a possibility. The safely percautions, the extra materials, the necessity to make robots water-tight and protection from electricty. It would be a mess I can't see FIRST doing. Teams that can't build so wonderous carpet robots will have a heck of a time with water bots.

Re: pic: 2007 Game Hint?

For a quick reprise of the never ending discussion about a water-based game, you can read through this thread. And for all those that believe that a water-based game is an absolute impossibility, I would recommend that you pay particular attention to Post #11 in that thread.

Nothing is "impossible." "Highly improbable" is just the start of an interesting intellectual exercize.

I just got pwned by Dave...how awesome is that?!

I don't think FIRST would still have a water game though.

I told Dave at IRI 2002 I didn't think FIRST would lower robot weight, either.

I said something like, "It would throw off veteran teams and - for rookies - it's hard enough to meet the 130 lb limit, as it is!"

Dave said, "Hm, interesting ..." and walked away.
