2012 X-Cat Robot: Exxio Auditonimous (via Robot Card)

Rear card info coming soon.

Best name this year so far

I wanted X-Man (in honor of Xavier McDaniel) but the Mech team kids pushed hard for the name and since they couldn’t get X-Cats in Creed passed for the theme (X.X. I. Am won out) they were gonna push hard for the name. They got a cool logo out of it.

It may just be because I’m a huge Assassin’s Creed fan, but I love it Ed!

The robot looks really nice! From the moment I saw it at Rally, I knew the X-Cats had brought up another really great robot. I didn’t get to see much of it in action, but I really look forward to seeing it on the field at Finger Lakes.

Good luck, and I really look forward to seeing Exxio Auditonomous (:smiley: ) go!

p.s. I’m also really digging the logo!

Looks excellent as usual!


Koko, not sure those bumpers are legal:

Teams shall display their team number on the Bumpers in four locations at approximately 90° intervals around the perimeter of the Robot. The numerals must be at least 4 in. high, at least ¾ in. in stroke width, and be either white in color or outlined in white. Team numbers must be clearly visible from a distance of not less than 100 ft, so that judges, referees, and announcers can easily identify competing Robots.

Emphasis mine.

Very nice way to blend robo ball collection and a chute for human feed.

Love the wireless bridge placement, too… :slight_smile:

Seem perfectly legal to me.

Unless you don’t have a number on the back (in which case you would be violating the 90 degrees) or on the side (again, 90 degree placement), then you have 5 numbers on your bumpers, violating the fact that the rule doesn’t say “at least 4” it says “4”.

If that’s the case I’m sure it won’t be a problem to paint over the numbers on one of the bumpers.

Very nice robot! It will be great to watch you all at FLR, (PS I’m not sure if im saying the name correctly.)

FLR (abbreviated for Finger Lakes Regional) is about right. I hope they do webcast it. I really hope they run it on channel 4 again so my ex can DVR it for me and we can chop up the video for the Blue Alliance.

Looks great, the gatherer confused me a bit at first but i see the reasoning for what you did.

I look forward to seeing this bot in action!

Here’s the backside of the robot card.
