The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

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


“Stop waking me up, I need a rest after wiring up the battery!”

Girl appearing to use robot as a bed: “Of course I sleep with safety glasses on. Who doesn’t?”

Here we see a multi-tasking programmer.

  1. Prevent mechanical from stealing the robot to make “just one more mechanical tweak”–the programmers are fixing it already.
  2. Prevent drive team from stealing the robot to practice driving–when the programming team finishes auto, the drivers won’t be needed.
  3. Testing whether the robot can hold another robot.
  4. Evaluating whether or not the robot needs more padding.
  5. Taking a nap, until the camera flashes.

The Built-In pull-out guest bed was the only way I could convince my wife to let me keep it.

From the brand who brought you ramp bot…

Introducing the Bridge Bot!

You’re telling me that girl is 11 feet tall?

Agawam never knew their experiments with bubble protection could prove valuable years later. But watch out - the kid in the background is coming to pop it.

Guy on the left: “Why does she get to take a nap and I have to work my butt off?”

Person on the robot: “No more board games on the bot! Scouting is NOT that boring!”

When you’re waiting for Billfred to post the next caption contest. Any flat surface becomes a bed.


The plan was simple. We didn’t have time to complete the robot, so on bag night, we’d put the student in with the robot and have them complete it by competition. We even provided the student a fold out bed.

They picked the most flexible person on the team to test if someone could fold up inside.

Is this and FRC robot or a home improvement one? If it is the latter than can it do the dishes for me as well as all you mentioned.

After Rosie’s six legs failed, Autumn was forever known as Fall.

When will we tell her there’s NOT another robot coming up the ramp?

Certainly not before I get a pic of that grimace.

The new robotics yoga pose: upward facing freshman.

Yes, we threatened to do exactly that!!!


@Billfred Bonus points for accuracy? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Sure, that’ll get three points too (and count as a burn award, because I’m too lazy to massage the spreadsheet for very rare cases).
