I am 100% convinced this should be legal and can(has) be done without meeting the colloquial definitions of grasp, grab, or grapple, but the GDC's inane refusal to be clear about what they intend to allow makes it very risky to travel down this path with confidence.

The rest of the robot is pretty sweet too. Will there be a Dukes of Hazzard horn for when you go over the bridge?

In my mind this is exactly how grappling hooks work, I had thought of this and gave up on using it when I realized I couldn't hold ground in an argument that it was not "grasping grappling or attaching".

Instead I chose a completely legal by the rules route and had that flip on me....

easiest way to end this:

How do grappling hooks work? and how is this any different than that

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Needless to say, great robot. I love your choice for the name, truly inspirational, and its got the looks to match. Bridge hanging is so boss, I would love to hear the engineering that went into the end game mechanism.

Aside from that- what was the video taken with? Looks like a gopro wide angle.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Incredible. I have been mentioning to a few people these past two days that I really haven't been "wowed" yet and now I have. Congrats on a awesome robot guys and good luck next week at Alamo. By the way to help clarify, is that two points of contact on the bridge or only one?

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Awesome design. Mad props to 118.

I too, am curious at how the ruling for grasp/grab/etc will pan out. I understand how FRC 179's robot isn't grasping the field because the robot's CG is directly over or under the C that touches the bridge, which means the robot is only reacting on one face of the bridge.

118's cantilevered hang means that the robot must be reacting on two faces of the bridge. I guess we'll have to see how the ruling goes...

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Awesome design - the robotnauts never disappoint! I have doubts about your optional end-game tease (did I see what I thought I saw?) but it seems done in such a way that the bot excels using traditional strategies - the only risk was the design effort and a little weight. Elegant.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

Awesome. Incredible. Mindblowing.

I've been waiting for this video all build season .

That's a very novel bridge balancing idea, and I'm sure its legal, especially since we've already seen a similar method that is legal.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2012 Video

That robot looks great, but I do have my doubts about the bridge balancing. If this doesn't count as grabbing, grasping, or grappling, what does? The GDC didn't specify not being allowed to do those things for no reason.

But wow. And now I'm wondering what "mostly complete" refers to.
