2019 Speculation Again

It's summer, and I've been playing with ideas in my head.

Let's say the primary 2019 game piece was a bowling ball. A big heavy one.

What sort of goals might you have to accomplish with it?

How would you design a robot to accomplish these?

Re: 2019 Speculation Again

Since our build location is my bowling center, I would at least have easy access to a game piece.

Re: 2019 Speculation Again

I think an interesting challenge would be lifting it. Most manipulators I’ve seen have relied entirely on friction to grip the ball, and that’s mught not work with something that heavy. It would take some amount of work to get it into some sort of “basket” that lets you easily control the ball.

Skee ball with bowling balls!
Human player ball return through a chute where you try to nail the opponents robot when they line up for a shot.
Bowling balls of different weights and a balancing end game.

Bowling balls take "robots must be built robustly to avoid damage" to an entirely new level.

Re: 2019 Speculation Again

Astro-navigating in Deep Space is all based on gravity wells. Bowling balls could symbolize cargo pods that have to be ejected to the correct planets, that is, gravity wells.


I'm guessing that this year instead of carpet, FIRST will spring for a complicated 3d floor with gravity wells built it. Will make driving interesting.
Am I the first one to think of this?

In Deep Space, mass means very little. You give it a little momentum and watch it go, go, go... perhaps it will get caught in a larger cosmic object's gravity pull... All a robot would have to go is merge paths with it and nudge it...

Well, way to go, thanks a lot. I'm sure some folks from First are on here, and i'm sure one of them saw that and were like "oh hey that's a great idea."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but First normally plans games out in advance so 2019 planning is wrapping up and 2020 is probably under already.

Alternatively, they said: "Crap, they thought of that one too. Back to the drawing board!"

Cool Re: 2019 Speculation Again

My team has been using anti matter dampeners for years to offset a portion of our robot weight by canceling it out. We'd probably have a system to slap one of those babies on the bowling ball like you would flex-tape on a recently sawed in half boat to effectively reduce the weight of the bowling ball to 0.
