Favorite Robot Videos

I just finished editing our team’s robot video for 2012 (to be reveiled towards IRI) and it reminded me of this thread which I made in 2010. While the competition aspect of the other thread was dumb I still love watching robot unveiling and season recap videos and I know a bunch of other people do too. I figured it would be nice to have everyone’s favorite robot videos in one thread again, especially with a multitude of teams that have started making great videos over the last two years.

While there are a bunch of great videos in the other thread I figured I’d let people re-post them to get the thread going rather than posting them all at the same time in addition to all the great new videos out there. So, just post your favorite FRC robot videos!

I’ll lead off with what is still one of my favorites:
118 Robonauts 2007

and a newer favorite:
254 Cheesy Poofs 2011

Cheers, Bryan

Robonauts 2010

Robowranglers 2010 The music is really fitting for the part where it shows off the lift mechanism, which is just cool on its own anyway.

Robonauts 2011 Overused song, but it works well here. Especially love it for the ending.

Robonauts 2012 (I’m somewhat of a fan of Robonauts)

Falcon Robotics (842) 2012

I spent way too much time watching robot videos this season, I should probably stop now before I make a 100 video post.

Sure, I’ll show my age…

I guess I will show my lack of age…

I would have to say though that 118 w/o a doubt takes the prize for best videos.

Jumping on the NASA powered bandwagon, I must say that Robonaut videos follow the same quality and care they put into their robots. Their videos, if there was one available, would win any award given for release videos.

I love the Tumbleweed video from 148

While not so much a robot video, RoboBee is a pretty amazing song too.

I’ll try and post ones that haven’t already been posted:
Winnovation 2010
Robowranglers 2009 (one of my favorites)
Robovikes 2012
Killer Bees 2011
High Rollers 2012 (Possibly my new favorite)
D’Penguineers 2012 (Also possibly my new favorite)

Every Robowranglers video since ever.

The Mighty Monkey Wrenches have been producing some pretty nice videos!

  1. No Contest.

If you like the 118 videos (particularly 2006? The “Fish and Chips” one), take a look at 2587’s 2011 video.

Other teams in the same area that have some good videos (featuring good robots as well) are 624 (2012) and 1477 (2011). So far no Texas Torque video for this year… James, make it happen!

118’S 2012 video hands down is the most inspirational.

2nd place goes to 973’s 2012 video

I think the exact same thing 118’s 2011 video. I remember the first time I saw it thinking to myself that it was utter perfection. It was totally different then anything I thought would exist in logomotion.

I thought that 610’s video was pretty B.A.
Cool editing with the song, and a pretty slick robot.

+1 for your 1st pick. I know many people love the 111 video from a while ago, but 118’s took the cake. I particularly liked the part with the little light show.

2nd place, for this year at least, I think has to go with 341. A simple-ish, robot, put up to an…unorthodox…song, and they rocked every second of it.
