IKEA power cubes

I was looking around the IKEA website and happened upon this:

https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80266699/


Question 1: Is it worthy for use in FIRST POWER UP?

Question 2: Is it edible?

Yes*, actually!
The bread is the PowerCube-looking cushion stuff and the ingredient is the air inside

Question 4: Can it be placed on the scale?

*Only yes if you believe that items with full wrap around "bread" such as poptarts and wraps are sammiches

still not sure if it can be considered a sammich. more research is required

I did some research and figured out that it can be placed on a scale and is also edible

I did some research and figured out that it can be placed on a scale (picture here)
With that creativity you could start a pop-up restaurant booth at Champs with edible FIRST game pieces and make tons of money during lunch

Someone should get one of these and stick one of the FRC logo bumper stickers that came in the KOP to the top of it, THEN it will really be a power cube.

Re: IKEA power cubes

Why would anyone want to go to the ikea website?
Go to the store instead, while there you can use your newly discovered power cubes to build a fort in one of the corner showrooms.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

I think IKEA would allow you to bring your robot into the store disassembled and the assemble it in the store.

But only if your part names are sufficiently cryptic.

Your bot would leave the store with a Sweddish name and plenty of meatballs!
