And the picture:

As always, the deadline is Saturday at midnight EDT, unless you pull a fast one on me.


Darn! The human has another pulled hamstring. If we ever get that bug fixed I know that we will have a killer human.

And the circle is now completed…

383’s demo robot:

I am NOT a control freak!
This is robot meditation.
Repeat after me,
‘be one with the robot - ohm…
control the inner drive to operate without your team mates.
be one with the robot…’

It was inevitable that humans would be deemed obsolete to even be able to compete against robot run teams in FIRST. My God, what have they wrought? WHAT HAVE THEY WROUGHT?

Well somebody told me
You had a ROBOT
Who looked like a Driver
That I had in last build season
It’s very confidential
AND my team got potential

Unhappy with the way robots have been generally treated by humans, Johnny 5 took matters into his own hands.

Still convinced robots aren’t taking over the world?

While the team struggles with the game robot’s autonomy code, the controls team takes autonomy to the next level so humans are unnecessary.

What do you mean the robot gets disabled for me touching the controls? I am autonomous aren’t I?

First it was babies having babies, now it is robots driving robots… What is this world coming to?

Now this is what I call autominous mode! :smiley:

Coincidentally, the driver pictured also was the producer of a certain Styx song that I’m quite sure you all know…

[not an entry] Is this Johnny 4? And where exactly does the driver badge go? [/not an entry]

The team from Porto Alegre demonstrates how they won the “Most Photogenic” award back in 2000. Quite the clothes hound there.

This robot was the prototype that didn’t get used. He decided to take the matters into his own hands and smash the other robot into pieces the day before ship. Now they would have to ship him as there robot,and he thought that he had gotten away with it, but before the other robot was destroyed it captured this picture. Now he sits on a shelf brainless.

OH the autonomous mode didn’t work now I have to re-program the Human!!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

When they reviewed the surveillance camera video, they were shocked when they learned what the robot had been doing, alone at night by himself.

(good taste prevents me from posting what I want to say :^)

[PS: hey Billfred, what happend to my accumulated score on the caption contest?!]

<obviously not an entry>
The scores get wiped at the end of a year of caption contests, most recently after #104.

I thought i saw this in a movie once…

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,

Mata ah-oo hima de
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Himitsu wo shiri tai

You’re wondering who I am-machine or mannequin
With parts made in Japan, I am the modern man

I’ve got a secret I’ve been hiding under my skin
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don’t be surprised
I’m just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide
To keep me alive-just keep me alive
Somewhere to hide to keep me alive

I’m not a robot without emotions-I’m not what you see
I’ve come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
I’m not a hero, I’m not a saviour, forget what you know
I’m just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control
Beyond my control-we all need control
I need control-we all need control
