Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

Ok great bot, HP, and minibot! One of the best I have seen! I can't wait to see it this season. Looks like our HP needs to improve a little bit based on yours. I must say really really good job guys.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

It looks like you guys went from 6 to 8 wheel drive, any particular reason?

Magic looks incredible. You guys have managed to make what appears to be an incredibly complicated robot function seamlessly. Hopefully I can make it to St. Louis to see it in action!

I believe this is the first time 118 has done 8-wheel drive. I'm really surprised you didn't go 6 wheel crab drive ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4Ki8-NLr6E

Great looking robot ! engineering, design and camera work is top quality as usual. See you guys in a week !

I feel like I justed watched a trailor to a summer blockbuster. Awesome video.

I can promise you that the scouts on my team will be fighting over the joy of scouting your robot. You picked a great year to come to Midwest.

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

This is the coolest robot I have seen yet.

Also, your team would be at the top of many people's pick list even if your robot was completely broken. The human player changes the game.

Good luck this year. I don't think you'll need it though.

Wow, that's mostly all i can say. But what exactly are the wings for? To help hold to tubes in?

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

Once again, an incredible robot! I love the idea that the tube grabbing mechanism is separate from the lift and placing mechanism! That is brilliant!

Besides the usual gorgeous water-jetted (I think) robot with all the bells and whistles, I think this will one of the most unique bots this year.

Great job, and I will see you in Florida!

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

I have mixed emotions... I am speechless how the robot turned out. I wish we had those resources. I hate how now we have no chance of winning... I really want to go to St Louis to see this beast in person.

Got a drill, enthusiasim, time and a jig saw? You can build a competetive robot with that.

That^ is not bashing on 118 at all. This is an impressive robot, and I always await seeing what they have to come up with. I LOVE the wings. Robot dance competition?

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

The most technical or complicated robots don't always win. Simple and effective isn't always better then flashy and complicated. But don't count yourself out, one amazing robot with a poor strategy and or partners, can't beat 3 simple but effective robots with a better strategy. This is why alliance selection in the elimination rounds are so critical.
