The Samsonite Monkeys of Site 3 Engineering (team 1097) have just beaten a box to death simulating the force of robots colliding with on of the boxes. We discovered that the material that the boxes are made of isn't very bendable. When kicked about 5 times the box cracked
, making holes in the box. Now just imagine the force of two 130 lb. robots colliding with the box. It would practically shatter. Just wanted to help all you other teams out with the heads up.
