Love this robot. I'm so happy a team actually built a robot similar to everybot. This robot will effectively fill a critical role on any elims alliance and I look forward to seeing it in competition!

Wait, the team name is the Purple Vipers and they didn't paint their robot purple? I am sad now.

Re: pic: 3355

I kinda assumed that lexan box was going to hold purple snakes. Was I wrong? Cause I am not sure there is a specific rule against it... though if you do it I be there will be a new team update.

How much longer do we have before it starts spreading down I-45? I need some advance notice if I'm going to have to change my whole wardrobe.

I've got some Peak Green PLA that'd fit in very nicely over there in Katy, if you need any 3D prints to spruce up the robot.

Thanks to all for the compliments. We just went through "purple haze" for our JV FTC robot with tons of 3D printed parts for the first time this year. We were like kids at the candy store. The custom parts were all purple. The varsity team put their collective feet down and said "no more @#$5 purple. Heck, black paint is cheap, right?

I too was sad but team trumps coach/mentor in this case. They bought in to the idea of simple, robust and niche filling. I wasn't going to start the yearly drama about some mere paint. We've got a good give and take on most everything. It's one of the reasons I keep teaching after 30 years!

See all (whom are going) at the Dallas Regional. We're low resource so this is the big show for us. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
