The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

Amazon warehouse alpha shows promise

2 minutes later, the referees determined that the stack wouldn’t count at all… because “someone” forgot to make sure the bottom bin was upright.

When your robot loses a wheel during the demo but you still manage to show off anyways

“This is fine”

A red streak - that means iron, copper, or mercury! We’d better make sure they’re not using a mercury switch to keep the bins level.

The reason warehouse stocking robots are so much better at recycle rush than FRC/FTC robots is that they’re programmed to make sure boxes stay “This Side Up”… Most of the time.

They thought that this would be the last stacking game.

They thought wrong.

Red Streak. More like Red Weak.
/s

Don’t @ me. I think they’re a great team.

Yes, the robot can stack them upside down!

Then came that moment when the arm retracted.

The Red Streak’s streak ended in carnage.

The team called this a demonstration event for 2003. In reality, it was a thinly disguised plea to get a proper build space with a higher ceiling.

I do not know what they are seeing all I see is glare.

Moments later the robot did what nobody expected and stacked itself on top.

Team 811 demonstrates how their innovative anti-gravity system keeps the back of their robot off the ground.

Yet another team in 2003 that expected their matches to last longer than autonomous mode.

Time to cap it with the RECYCLING CONTAINER and LITTER!

Red Streak: “Stack the totes. Move the totes. Nobody cares about my hopes and dreams.”

“He was the best stack robot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. And he was a good friend.”

2020 Definition of “Red Streak”: getting red bumpers 3+ matches in a row
2003 Definition of “Red Streak”: just this robot, because bumpers weren’t a thing yet
