Microsoft gave every team a Kinect for Overdrive. Their new mixed reality headset is going to be priced at or under $399 and content for it can be created with Vuforia.

I've already predicted (to my team) that we'll get the new Microsoft MR headset and it will be used by the technician.

Not to mention that the airship in the teaser appeared to be a true airship (buoyant), while the one on the field was a heavier-than-air rotary wing craft.

Hololens and the $200 shell are completely different one is Mixed (AR and ultimately VR) the other just AR connected to a mobile device (limited processing) .The cost at $3000-5000 ($3000 is for developers/$5000 for Enterprises) is prohibative for the one that is self-contained runs Windows 10 and supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

What would they do about the phone requirement for Vuforia?

One day I'm sure they will do Mixed Reality but that will likely be after Hololens 3 comes out (They developed and skipped 2, no competition)

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Did anone else connect frank's blog post saying we will need pool noodles (not bumpers like he said last year) to andymark selling pool noodles in the 32 pack? Previously it was just a 6 pack which is still sold.

Please no. I would love to not have pool noodles again.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

WCP and Andymark BOTH put out Limelights
AM puts out Lidar
WCP puts out Rollers
Most companies don't put out equipment people don't need.
Limelights thorough documentation is fun though, case studies on aiming, estimating distance, seeking, getting in range. Lots of information there.
A lot of DK referenced in it but I aesthetically it could just be the art style they chose.

I'm concerned
Technicians don't play on machines they work inside machines, and that sure is where she ended up. This leads into territory where the robots are either inside the game "lets pretend its donkey kong in this instance" or controlling the game of donkey kong. The arcade cabinet has two player areas with a joystick and 6 buttons 3 red, 3 blue. A lot to think about.
Either way FRC is most likely pulling some Inception level stuff with this game within a game...

Oh Inb4 they put a reference to polybius I called it first.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

There may also be a structure on the filed that resembles an arcade cabinet, and maybe the goals will be there. The tubes to bring wiring to the field already exist. Maybe there are different types/sizes of cabinets. Also, there could be "dollar bill" game pieces and "coin" game pieces, which can be obtained from a "change machine".

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

My opinion? (Wait till i get proven completely wrong tomorrow)
2015-like game where the field is separated in 2 and each alliance sticks to their own side.
The divider would have an arcade cabinet for scoring that the technician is inside of and recycles game pieces back to the field once scored.
Every so many coins that the robots put into the machine will make the character move up in the game (Maybe DK, or just a light on a pole or something) and once the character is at the top they can save the princess or something for a RP.

That's just not gonna happen. The GDC saw how boring* that turned out, and it seems they turned their back on that idea pretty completely.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Teams are advised to study successful intake mechanism from 2015. Low clearance drivetrains will not only be possible, but will serve to your advantage. Don't confuse this year's game with Recycle Rush, however - collisions will be rough in 2018.

We're due to see that sort of game in 2029, if the current pattern holds. (Anybody starting to speculate on the 2029 game, please run through the scene with the monks in Holy Grail, using the 2018 game manual.)

Is this just your opinion or are you quoting this from somewhere, because I really hope it’s true.

We have had confirmation that there will be bumpers so I think we'll be seeing contact.
