Go to Post This has to be the hardest, most complicated game I've ever seen the GDC develop - that's what makes it so much fun! SteveGPage Kims Robot
Go to Post Maybe we should have some safety training before and during build instead of just having flyers at our pit. Hm... JaneYoung Billfred
Go to Post "The devil" isn't in the details... The devil is having a loud house party with lots of other devils and demons in the details. And laughing, and laughing... pfreivald IndySam

Go to Post I hate to do say it with these words but...We're all in this together. dellagd DeformedFedora
Go to Post Magic doesn't count as a support, sorry. Neither does simply constraining in CAD... EricH Siri
Go to Post We've done that autonomous. After several years of refinement we decided to skip the information collection and just drive into the wall at the earliest opportunity. Greg Young joshsmithers
Go to Post Our robot will use sensors to collect information about its environment, then discard that information and drive into a wall. Jared Russell Hallry
Go to Post if your robot weighs 1-1/2 tons, you have bigger problems then the legality of that jack... ekapalka Micah Chetrit
Go to Post On the other hand, if the tires were marked "NOT FOR FRISBEE SHOOTER USE" I'd be worried. Ken Streeter Whippet
Go to Post Attempted to like Andrew's comment and then realized this wasn't Facebook :P afowl dictionaria13
Go to Post It's a hunch, based on engineering intuition; there are too many hard-to-quantify variables to do any accurate calculations. Looking for some experimental corroboration or refutation. Ether Ian Curtis
Go to Post My goal as a mentor is to make myself irrelevant. Is that possible? Probably not. But this is one place I am willing to aim stupidly high. Ian Curtis KrazyCarl92
Go to Post Thanks GDC for opening a can of Chuck Norris Brain Hurt Garrett.d.w DeformedFedora
Go to Post Weird. On a forum where people talk about robots, we have a robot trying to talk to people. dellagd Whippet
Go to Post I personally need all the limbs and eyeballs I currently have, and I assume other feel the same way. bfk dtengineering
Go to Post This game is absolutely *NOT* too difficult, but many teams will make it too difficult by biting off more than they can chew. pfreivald IKE
Go to Post Keep your chin up, your safety glasses on, and don't let the magic smoke out of the electrical components and you'll do just fine :) rsegrest DeformedFedora
Go to Post If you refuse to come to any compromises with your Ultimate Ascent robot design, you risk compromising everything (including your sanity). Jared Russell Holtzman
Go to Post Has FIRST ever made a game that was easy to do? Koko Ed Hallry
Go to Post The robots that rise to the top will not be the ones that do everything poorly, but the ones that are breathtaking at one thing. Be that robot. DampRobot Koko Ed

Go to Post IRI: where egos go to die...uhm..I mean fly! Koko Ed Hallry
Go to Post FIRST provides evidence that many of us are optimists. mrnoble pfreivald
Go to Post We need to grow smart not grow fast. Andrew Schreiber SamC
Go to Post FIRST is hard. It's supposed to be. We can't keep giving people a check and expecting them to succeed. We need to stop this model. It takes a village to raise a child but it takes a community to build a FIRST team. Andrew Schreiber joelg236
Go to Post FRC: more like the real world than we could ever want. efoote868 Joe G.
Go to Post 30 point hang is brutal. Those who say it is easy are not thinking it through or are way smarter than the rest of us ... Paul Copioli Ian Curtis
Go to Post The dog-gear! Do u even shift bro? WileyB-J Walter Deitzler
Go to Post Consider that the 12V from your robot isn't any different from the 12V from your car's cigarette lighter. (Err... sorry... that's "power port" these days, thank goodness.) dtengineering Billfred
Go to Post Goodness, YES. Please get a copy of the rules. It explains a lot, and if your robot does NOT follow the rules, you will not be allowed to compete. Really, it is very important. DonRotolo Tristan Lall
Go to Post wonder if the April peak for 'frisbee launcher' was from the GDC... cbudrecki dag0620
Go to Post You can never be done too early for more testing and practice! Donut Hallry
Go to Post Between reading the Manual, Q&A, Team Updates, the Blog, and Chief Delphi, you can be one of the most valuable members of any team. Gregor Karibou
Go to Post Every freshman or first time FIRST student comes onto the team with little to no experience. The whole point is that you will get to learn how to do some new things. engunneer Hallry
Go to Post You don't have to build a robot to be on a robot team. This isn't about the robot, it's about learning. engunneer Hallry
Go to Post So kudos for asking advice... you've got plenty of good advice so far in this column... but honestly, if Orville and Wilbur Wright had taken good advice they would have packed up and gone back to their bicycle shop. dtengineering nathan_hui
Go to Post So next time you speculate, label it as such and not as established fact. Please. Bad information is worse than no information. DonRotolo Hallry
Go to Post Let this be a hint to the hardware teams. Deliver that robot early and give the software and driving team time with the robot. IR3 has proven it can be done. Doug Leppard Travis Hoffman
Go to Post Just because something has never been done, doesn't mean it's impossible. See: everything ever. Taylor Grim Tuesday
Go to Post You do need help. Don't reject offers of assistance from veterans. There are more things you don't know than you think there are. Alan Anderson vhcook
Go to Post What Delphi says doesn't matter. What the official Q&A says matters. Tetraman Karibou
