Re: [BB] 2010 Game Hint #1

"Good Morning Teams,

I wish you a happy winter holiday of your choice. FIRST will be closed Friday, December25th returning Monday, December 28th

The FRC Season News and Email Blast page now has its own RSS feed.

A game hint should appear on the FRC landing page of the usfirst.org website today….

16 days until the 2010 Kickoff
See you there! "

The link was broke when I try, but I will assume the above pic is legit....

It looks like it's only one of a series of these parts.
If multiples of these stack together maybe our robots have to do office filing or parts warehousing

Maybe we stack little robot partners on these shelves...

Re: [BB] 2010 Game Hint #1

The link is dead, but the game hint is viewable on the FRC landing page on http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/

Hmmm...

The hint image is an original image, not found anywhere else on the internet based on a TinEye search.

It looks like a multipositioning step of some sorts. Possibly the field this year will have a wall that will vary in height randomly?

EDIT:
Also, since it is listed as "1st Clue.jpg" we might be in for some more clues closer to kickoff.

Re: [BB] 2010 Game Hint #1

The design of the piece suggests that it wouldn't be robust enough to be a field piece, in my opinion.

Re: [BB] 2010 Game Hint #1

It's a set of support parts that telescope.

And with the reflections it's not on water its ON ICE!!

It's an ICE ski support with the rest of the ski to be attached.

WE ARE ON THE ICE! Woo roboteers, start your skate machines!

Re: [BB] 2010 Game Hint #1

It connects to something in the field as the Overpass did in Overdrive. if you look at the smoked lexan, you can see a reflection of a pole (not the two poles visible to us) But a pole with 2 visible pegs. Those could be connections for other pieces? A field element?

Its obviously a render of the field, or more than just this part, they just moved the background plane during the render.

I'll throw stuff out there. I already said a field connection part. So something structural. It could also be an autoloader for some piece. A ball or something, Part, Box, Playing element, that the robots could get at and it would always be filled (by a volunteer!) from 2005.

Thoughts??

Re: [BB] 2010 Game Hint #1

My first thought was that it looks like some sort of yoke, but that seems too similar to last years idea with the trailers. Unless, this year you attach and reattach trailers...

I don't see how it would be adjustable. There are two pins on either sides that snap into other tubes, but those holes in the center are for attaching the plastic piece, not for sliding, right?

Maybe that a futuristic hoop because FIRST is doing a techno update on Croquet.
