Seriously though fantastic looking bot this year. I especially love the extra wide tuber-scooper.

Is that a Playstation move controller on the back, or a human player signal, or do you just really like cool shiny lights?

Good luck this season, hopefully we'll get to see ya'll in St. Louis

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

Holy crap, that looks fantastic!

Robot aside, that's a wonderful piece of video... and that it starts with my favorite quote EVER doesn't hurt.

Good luck -- I know you don't need it!

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. So we will see you at Alamo and Midwest!

But you made a strategic mistake in releasing the video. This robot is so jaw-dropping, opponent drive teams would have been rendered motionless upon first seeing it.

After watching a video like this, I wonder how much growth my team needs to get to this level. Wow. Stunning...

In all seriousness, it seems they're there to cradle/center the tube

Re: The Robonauts 118 - 2011 Video

Looks like the wings are to align the tubes in the lower gripper so the upper one can take it and score.

One thing that intrigues me, the colored status indicator beacon on the side opposite the manipulator, does that automatically light up the color of the tube the robot is possessing for the driver to know?
Erm i dont want to give it away but its for the hp and one more thing, thats all imma gonna say

Your human player's throw seems almost illegal, but I suppose its probably just the angle... I'll have to try that throw...
