LED Light Indicators

Our team wants to do yellow and purple LED Lights on our robots manipulator to indicate to the human players whether we want a cone or a cube. Do you think this would be legal?

I would advise lookin at this thread, this seems to be a common idea and there are no rules that I can think of that would prohibit it.

Yes, it is totally legal. A lot of robots (including ours) have used this in the past. Our robot had LEDs along its Limelight mount behind the shooter head last year that gave a variety of signals to the driver and operator about the state of the robot, targeting, etc. Something as simple as a driver-selected color to indicate which game piece to feed the robot is not only relatively easy to program but likely to be very widespread this season.
