Go to Post i wish ours was done so i could get some sleep keagara lukevanoort
Go to Post well, our team isn't actually building a robot, we're covering our team leader in foil. NERD12345 Alex Burman
Go to Post By the way, safety glasses are so in style now, :) LightWaves1636 i_am_Doug
Go to Post NERDs...gotta collect them all! Conor Ryan Jessica Boucher
Go to Post darn design trade-offs! the game design committee does this to us every year! KenWittlief Billfred
Go to Post The most important piece of advice I can give is have someone assigned to pay attention to the batteries. You cannot imagine how many teams end up saying "I thought you were charging the batteries..." RoboMom Billfred
Go to Post I'm absolutely certain there are simpler ways of accomplish the same things. I'm simply not the best that FIRST has to offer in this regard and part of what drives me to keep going is the desire to get better at achieving an elegant solution with as few superfluous processes as possible. Madison Billfred
Go to Post Oh no, do I see a new reality TV show coming? "Dancing with the FIRST Stars"??? :ahh: KathieK Beth Sweet
Go to Post Good thing that this is FIRST and not FIRD (For inspiration & Recognition of Dancing) ... :) Jason Morrella Alex Burman
Go to Post Proof: Remove the motor from it's mechanical house of bondage and it will operate just fine Mike Betts steveg
Go to Post *gasp* robot? what robot? we were suppose to build a robot? LightWaves1636 Alex Burman
Go to Post This is just one example of why you MUST NOT make engineering decisions based on assumptions. You should check/measure your parts and make appropriate design adjustments. Stu Bloom Billfred
Go to Post Besides, you know hard it is to solder with gloves on? Al Skierkiewicz Billfred
Go to Post FIRST is one strange world.... Wayne C. lukevanoort
Go to Post It's always nice to have the outside party take a look at your code because one of two things can happen: 1. They write it better. 2. They find your stupid mistake. Astronouth7303
Go to Post ...on occasion, just smile and nod in appreciation. dubious elise Venkatesh
Go to Post We do have a good time. Mr. Bill Bill Beatty Jay Trzaskos
Go to Post Robotics is better than Football. Robotics > Football !!! Arkorobotics Michelle Celio
Go to Post Looks great! Love that Indiana engineering!! Mr.D Billfred
Go to Post If you need more complicated control... make it more complicated yourself. ;) Ryan M. Billfred
Go to Post I am surprised at the relative conservative capability you described on our 2006 machine. As for the 2007 machine, in anticipation of an aquatic game, we have completed a robot that "walks on water" and are well along with one that can "part the sea". Bill Beatty Billfred
Go to Post I've learned never to say never when it comes to FIRST teams. Karthik Ian Curtis
Go to Post Robotics = my anti drug. Queen_of_Mascot Koko Ed
Go to Post I know what "finished" means, and I know what "robot" means, but what is this "finished robot" of which you speak? Rick TYler Billfred
Go to Post I know what "finished" means, and I know what "robot" means, but what is this "finished robot" of which you speak? Rick TYler Alex Burman
Go to Post The 2006 FRC Manual: Read it. Learn it. Know it. dlavery Jessica Boucher
Go to Post I haven't been negative about any FIRST game yet, but scaling and cleaning fish in 2009 that were used in 2008 is going to stink. Literally. :P Billfred Michelle Celio
Go to Post What? No Poof balls as pillows? Phfff. Amateur. :p artdutra04 Billfred
Go to Post To me, FIRST is about having students realize that there IS an answer to the age old high school question: "when are we ever going to use this crap?" Chris Hibner Cory
Go to Post In the 2010 game, FRC and FVC robots will be working together to cut Dave's hair, mow his lawn, and serve him dinner. ;) Rich Kressly Shu Song
Go to Post Only Dave knows [if the 2010 game is designed already], and he aint tellin' but he'll happily feed you lots of red herrings. Koko Ed Jessica Boucher
Go to Post I was not looking at this as a backdoor to asking Brandon to do it (when I have impossible/unreasonable tasks I want done, I ask him straight out ;-) Joe Johnson Billfred
Go to Post It's just another design constraint that needs to be dealt with. Dave Scheck Jessica Boucher
Go to Post .. just don't try to sell/trade your freshmen or something silly like that. :) Brandon Martus Ian Curtis
Go to Post A robot that can't move isn't a robot. It's just furniture. John Neun JVN
Go to Post Woodie once said he wanted to make our brains hurt. And I *don't* think he was talking about getting beaned by 198 grams of foam.... Ken Patton Billfred
Go to Post FIRST has a 365 day season (366 on leap years)... Adam Richards Jessica Boucher
Go to Post This exercise in thanking the hand that teaches you brought to you by the Unsung FIRST Heroes Award. Have you thanked your mentor lately? Amanda Morrison Billfred
Go to Post [this is rapidly turning into a 'how many engineers does it take....' contest :^) ] KenWittlief EricH
Go to Post Even though others have had success, I will be honest, this method sort of creeps me out. Joe Johnson Billfred
Go to Post Engineering fundamentally comes down to problem solving, and if the students can't get excited and inspired by the problem solving process because someone has spoon fed them a solution, then nobody wins. Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime. kevinw Eldarion
Go to Post But plywood is so awesome on robots...... But I guess shiny usually always wins out huh? Jon K. Jessica Boucher
Go to Post HEY! a robot that occupies 4 dimensional space is against the rules! KenWittlief Barry Bonzack
Go to Post Welcome to FIRST, the place where you can be competitive in a team. Here people can learn more in one year of FIRST than in four years of high school. dude__hi Hallry
Go to Post It is better to err on the side of caution than to put yourself in a position to have a referee or judge make a call against you. Build smart! Sean Schuff Billfred
Go to Post Actually, FIRST Is hoping the reverse, that your bot will be "Ball damage proof" Rombus Billfred
Go to Post *POP!* I suppose I'll have to change my hair style to the John V-Neun now. Billfred Amanda Morrison
Go to Post A Guru teaching batteries at Exide: "Do not draw your power from up here, by your terminals. You must reach down deep into your plates and pull the energy from your entire being! You must prove yourself worthy to be FIRST power cells!" KenWittlief Rick TYler
Go to Post ...before we ship the robot, they have to make me understand how it works. Beth Sweet dlavery
Go to Post I wish my biology class was this exciting. MissInformation Billfred
