LOL!!! Morgan looks about ready to pass out.
runs to nearest door and measures width
Yeah my closest door is a little under 30"
Edit: nevermind. morgan has redeye in that picture and it looked like his eyes were closed…
OMG, how big are our bot allowed to be???
I hope this doesn’t mess up any of my plans…
Morgan looks…just fine.
I heard it’s also a terror to fit into a car =]
Hey, Alexa, and Morgan, how about you deflate the ball a little bit before you try and move it =]
LOL that happened to us too Dx
yeah, our prototyping meetings were going on in two different rooms, so we had to take a ‘field trip’ to do any real hands-on testing.
This reminds me so much of Violet from the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when she turns into a blueberry. We were able to get it though the doors at school without too much effort pushing though it.
That happened about five times today!
Each time gets funnier and funnier!
I think your gonna need a bigger door!
What did u guys use to blow it up
I just took took some pneumatic fittings from the KoP and a 1/4" NPT Quick Connect fitting, and used our workshop’s compressed air supply to inflate the sphere. You can stick the 1/4" tubing from the KoP right into the hole on the ball to inflate it.
If you don’t have a shop compressed air supply, take the output from the KoP compressor hooked up to the KoP tubing.
lol, the balls are 40" in diameter. Most doors have 36" opening. How many times can we inflate and deflate them before they brake?
how long did it take to in flate/deflate and will a constant flate/deflate damage the tracking ball(btw just realize the nerdy connection to a trackball mouse)
haha that happened to us too.
we inflated it outside and couldnt find a way to get inside…all the doors had the separators in between!
we ended up figuring out how to take off the separator then had to put it back on after
Hey um, by the way, when fully inflated does it really feel like it weighs 10 pounds?, thats what it says it should weigh in the manual…

i just pushed harder and it went right on in
These balls will be fun to handle
I waaaannnaaa the trackballss
omg, we here in Brazil still have to wait till January 15th
We weighed ours to be just a hair under 8 pounds.
Ours measures about 7.5 pounds. It actually does feel lighter to me than the ones at the kickoff in Manchester.
