#2

Humans watch in fear and amazement as the robot demonstrates its ability to eat things much larger than they are. That red orb is… a light snack.


#3

3824’s drive team watches in horror as their robot moves not only the ball, but begins to suck in the very fabric of reality.


#4

We built our robot to handle the occasional overinflated ball.


#5

Drive Coach: Guys, do something!
Drive team, using the Bop-it controller: We have absolutely no idea what we are doing.


#6

The drive team watches in horror as the bot devours ball after ball, and then turns to the referees.


#7

The meaning behind team 3824’s name: Hungry Vacuum Attack RoHAWKtics


#8

As it turns out, the exercise balls used in Aerial Assist were more compressible than most teams thought. This is demonstrated by team 3824’s robot, ejecting a 24 inch ball from their 2 inch vacuum tubing, mystifying their drive team, and explaining what happened to their team’s practice ball that had gone missing during the early prototyping stages of their build season.


#9

uproar commences, as the blue alliance controls the red robot using a loaf of french bread as a non-powered signalling device.


#10

They kept off the network. So I wonder how they are controlling the robot on the field?


#11

Air bags, deploy!


#12

Student: “Well, this sucks.”


#13

After inadvertently intaking half of the field, one referee, and a joystick, Team 3824 began questioning their decision to upgrade their Roomba.


#14

…And it blows bubbles!


#15

Okay, that’s one apple up on top!

[NPOE]Yes, T. Geisel (Dr. Seuss)'s birthday is tomorrow![/NPOE]


#16

Nobody truly understood why the drive team requested Red Hots Candy after each match.


#17

You can just imagine how cool the robot would look if they were on the blue alliance.


#18

I haven’t forgotten, I promise :slight_smile:

Second place goes to:
