Re: FRC Blog - Got Potential?

The community is slacking here... There is a game hint in here-- note that it did not say there wasn't a game hint, so that must mean there is one.

I'll go with the pic is the new driver station interface. All robot actions are decided by a direct brain interface 'voting' system using three drivers. If one driver becomes non-responsive, the forth is used a backup.

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.

Well, if you are going that route....

Googling the picture gets you "Lawrence of Arabia waving" and that must mean...wait, what? How does that picture get "Lawrence of Arabia waving"?

It's from "The Gamma People" made in 1956. The plot summary from wikipedia is - "A train passenger car carrying a reporter and his photographer mysteriously breaks away from its locomotive, accidentally ending up on a remote sidetrack in Gudavia, an isolated Ruritanian-style, one-village Eastern Bloc dictatorship. The newsmen discover a mad scientist using gamma rays to turn the country's youth into either geniuses or subhumans, all at the bidding of an equally mad dictator." (I think I would rather watch people walk around the desert for 4 hours.)

Clearly the deep space tie in has to be Mystery Science Theater 3000 based because that movie screams MST3K and it's not space by itself. Amazingly they never did "The Gamma People" on MST3K. Although Gamma is really close to Gamera. They did a lot of Gamera movies.

So there is going to be a giant turtle in the center of the arena destroying things with Kenny running around saying the turtle is the friend of all children. I guess the technician has to come up with quips about the match this year. That doesn't leave me any scoring ideas though.....
