I’m looking at the Innovation FIRST version of the VEX field posted here and I can’t believe my eyes. The BOM states all materials will cost approximately $1300, not including balls. But this does give you a complete field setup for both the regular or autonomous versions of the game.
The original version of the field, found at http://vexgames.com/catalog/i2.html does include the balls (do you get all 100?), but costs nearly $5500!! It seems to me that 100 racquet balls should cost no more than $150, so where did the extra $4000 come from?? It certainly isn’t the colored tiles and some paint…
How did IFI pull this off??
