Go!


#2

A few years later, those shirts were banned from all events. Reason? Any time someone saw them, they’d do the “ROBOT!!!”


#3

Its said that the tallest among them had many issues with tipping over.


#4

The person on the right misunderstood the meaning of the word “robot” on the shirts. He thought the shirts meant “Act like Terminator.” He ran through the pits, swinging his arms wildly, hurting himself and damaging other robots. This incident was a direct cause for the perennial no running in the pits rule that was eventually revoked at Palmetto in 2018.

If you ever see someone staying in a small, marked off region of the pits while running in place and swinging their arms wildly, tell them that Arnold Schwarzenegger has filed a lawsuit.


#5

Draco Malfoy: No need to ask you yours. Red hair… and hand-me-down safety glasses… you must be on the CAD team.


#6

When their robot showed up to NYC on time the year after disaster, they only felt like dancing.


#7

The kid on the right misunderstood the shirts. Instead of doing the “Robot”, he did the “Untested Autonomous”


#8

Who knew robotics students could tap into the power of quantum tunneling?


#9

One on the left: “Maybe he’s doing the robot.”

Second on the left: “But what’s he doing to it?”


#10

They never said anything about not running!


#11

He’s doing the robot so fast he’s just a blur!


#12

Though they admired his commitment to their shirts, the two could only look on in shame as their friend began to impersonate the bot’s performance during autonomous.


#13

In a magnanimous gesture of gracious professionalism, Barry Allen repairs his opponents’ robot as they try to find the metric Crescent wrench.


#14

In a lucky well timed photo, The Flash is captured “walking” to assist 759 repair their robot.


#15

No one quite remembers how the team tradition of dancing The Robot to Phil air-drumming Wipeout on the way back to the pits got started.


#16

Exits warp speed

GUYS! I just got back from the future!

What did you go into the future for?

I FIGURED OUT WHAT THE ROBOT IS!

Proceeds to demonstrate the Robot


#17

Since they’re from the UK, shouldn’t it be spelled Robout?


#18

How can we do the robot if our training robot is busted?
