Go to Post being surgically altered to have two right hands is a big commitment, but if you wanna drive, and drive well ..... ! KenWittlief Billfred
Go to Post I truly love zipties. They're so elegant - permanent, yet disposable. Strong, yet flexible. Ubiquitous, yet somehow.... special. Kris Verdeyen Bharat Nain
Go to Post There are a maximum of 80 balls in play . If all the balls are in the goals or out of play and the human players won't throw them back in, I guess the robots might try line dancing or doing the cha-cha. Rick TYler Ian Curtis
Go to Post There is no MILSPEC standard for pool noodles. Rick TYler pez1959
Go to Post There is no MILSPEC standard for pool noodles. Rick TYler vhcook

Go to Post i wish ours was done so i could get some sleep keagara lukevanoort

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 Besides, you know hard it is to solder with gloves on? Al Skierkiewicz 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
