Google Doodle~!

Wouldn't it be cool if there was a Google doodle for FIRST? Maybe during next year's kickoff... on the bus ride home from Championships, some of us were talking about designing one, and this is a sketch of what we came up with.

Anyone know any robots that have similar designs to these? The games of the robots are, in order: Logomotion, Breakaway, Lunacy, and Rebound Rumble.

Re: Google Doodle~!

That really looks good! IIRC, there was a way to submit drawings to google for logo ideas, I'm not sure how to find that now, but you should totally try to get it as the logo for a day!

Yeah we can email stuff to an email to submit suggestions... Does anyone know any robots that I could use to make the drawings more detailed, and also so we can put numbers on them?

Re: Google Doodle~!

This! After Google won the Founder's Award, one of the first things I told my teammates was that they needed a FIRST doodle. (:

I really love the sketch! I think it could do well as a standalone image or even an animation.

Re: Google Doodle~!

Please keep us updated on this, I would really like to see your doodle submitted to Google.

Regardless of whether you submit or not, if you decide to refine the doodle, would you share it with your fellow FIRSTers? It is really cool and I would like to see it spread through FIRST, kind of like the "I Love Robots" buttons.

Thanks!

Re: Google Doodle~!

That's a really cool and creative logo. That would be amazing if it did end up as a the google logo for a day or two.

Re: Google Doodle~!

That doodle design is amazing!
Our team's lunacy robot is vaguely "l" shaped!
I will look for a picture...
our breakaway bot was basically a chassis with a winch, so I guess that matches your picture too...
here is our lunacy robot:

http://www.team2399.org/?attachment_id=656 <-- the fan added at competition makes it a little less l-y i guess.

Re: Google Doodle~!

Gracie, do you happen to have any better pictures? I can't really get a good idea from the ones you linked to...

For Breakaway, I remember seeing this orange and purple (I think) one that basically hung on the tower and bounced returning soccer balls into their alliance area... I can't remember which division it was in or if it got to Einstein, but it was at least in the final matches... that is kinda my inspiration for that bot.

The robot you're thinking of belongs to 469. It made it all the way to the Einstein finals,

While everyone remembers 469, there were at least two other robots that actually hung and returned balls (469 did not hang). Team 51 is purple and orange, played in the Galileo eliminations, and seems the likely candidate.

Re: Google Doodle~!

Okay! I've tried to find more pictures! Let me know if he'll work for your doodle or if these don't work either.

Re: Google Doodle~!

I think the easiest way to do this is to take elements from several robots that work, and then have the numbers as the respective years of the games instead of some team's...

But if anyone has reference pictures for those robots, it would be much appreciated! I've been on Google for a while and am having a tough time...

By the way, in 2010 I think our team was in the Newton division...

That's really cool. It would be really cool to have the google doodle on during kickoff.

Re: Google Doodle~!

Instead of making it the Google image during kick off why not make it during nationals? just an idea. maybe add some color to it like red white and blue like first?
