The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

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

Go!

If you can dodge a ball, you can dodge a robot.

THINK FAST!

“Why are you looking at the robot like that?”
“I’m not a Jedi, I can’t sense danger, but I can watch it.”
Programming team tells someone to cause a distraction

Slap a drivetrain on the wooden base and you’ve got a pretty good tip-bot.

“How far do you think this arm could throw the ball?”

“I don’t know … across the Portage to Hancock?”

Of course it’s safe. Do you see any warning symbols or threatening colors?

Mentor: I must be very careful with how I do this, or else I could knock over the two drinks on the table onto all the electronics everywhere.

This year will be the least stressful yet, first literally gave us yoga balls to use as game pieces. So kind

I asked for mint chip ice cream! We need to retune vision I guess.

If OSHA inspectors walked in the door , I think I would have to launch the ball towards them and try to escape.

Wait…did that thing just catch that?
And why is it looking at me like that??
(Play theme to I, Robot)

Robot singing: “I got the whole world in my hands.”
Student: “Quiet, you. The rest of the team doesn’t know that you can talk,”
Robot: “What about the cameraman?”
Student: “We’ll take care of him later.”
Cameraman: “What?!?!”

That’s gonna be one well armed robot.

Let’s get to it!
