Go to Post I learned about how FIRST really is about so much more than a robot competition, it is about team building and the individual. - Adel Hodiwala [more]

Best robot drivers EVER!!!!

OK, this is just too cool. Check out the Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot!

I think I just found a way to replace our entire robot drive team! (no big deal, they are graduating anyway!)

That's cool. Their (roaches) legs are strong.

Edit: Now I'm thinking about the HEX Bug...

Congrats to all the Seniors!

Re: Best robot drivers EVER!!!!

That's what next years game is going to be!

That is awesome! That is probably going to lead into some interesting future drive contorl systems. Think about it, just walk forward, and the whole robot does the same thing! Only on a virtual plane though, like what the cockroach was technically on.

I have great respect for ants but driving a robot, although they are great at moving things right along - crumbs, leaves, dirt..

NOBODY knows quite what will happen there.

Teams could even be allowed to train their own cockroaches...

Re: Best robot drivers EVER!!!!

This is exciting; more doors are opening and expanding our horizon.
I was thinking: in a sense, these kinds of things are probably the most intimidating parts to rookie/teams that are thinking about forming.
This is where we encourage and inspire them the most, to be creative and innovative, and have fun all at the same time. You really couldn't ask for a better introduction to robots and engineering.

*I wonder what would happen if your trained insects got away??
*While packing for a competition: "Make sure you don't forget the extra cockroaches." (HEHE...I like the sound of that one...not so sure I would want to be the one in charge of those though.)

Re: Best robot drivers EVER!!!!

If only the roaches could actually think and strategize for themselves. Then FIRST could start a new event the FCRC, FIRST Cockroach Robotics Competition. And, can roaches where safety glasses

OK OK Don't get all worked up. It was just a joke.

But this is really cool. I would like to see this implemented into FIRST somehow.
