pic: Silicon Valley Field Debris

This is what is left over after three hard days at Silicon Valley. They just throw it away if nobody claims it, so why not do some scrounging? Good stuff in here.
Not shown: big 1/8" and 1/4" polycarbonate sheets, and uncut lengths of aluminum extrusions. Check out the solid block of Delrin in the picture!

Reminds me of the (http://www.amazon.com/I-Spy-Book-Picture-Riddles/dp/0590450875) books:

Lol, I know the field was a mess too. They were taping up the carpet between matches.

Heh, i spy some nuts and bolts I gave ya! :stuck_out_tongue:

Yep, Natalie gave me a quick tutorial of “scrounging after a competition”, I believe you guys call it, hahah.

P.S. I think you’re missing the huge multipe pieces of polycarbonate you guys found … and you’re absolutely right, you can find ANYTHING left over after a competition!

you should have seen the carpet after 766 pinned 254 against the rack the melted the carpet where their wheels were from the friction :eek:

Speaking of debris, I helped packed up the field after the regional, and one of the things I picked up was Mark’s que cards with awards and team numbers on them, if anyone want these as momentos, drop me a line and I’ll see if I have yours.

I spy an igus slider for the N sliders in the bottom left corner!! <3<3 IGUS!!!

Sounds like it got pretty rough up there. Any flags given?

no yellow flags were given out during SVR. many penalty flags were thrown, but none for rough play (ramming) that i know of. We did get a penalty for pinning 254 to the rackand several warnings were given out to other teams for rough play (but not 766!). I belive that was the first penalty 766 has been given during the time i have been the driver (06-07).

It baffles me how a programming cable could end up as field debri :eek:.

Our programmer isn’t complaining. :stuck_out_tongue:
Other stuff that doesn’t make sense: drill bits, erasers, and safety glasses.

are those operator badges i spy?

No, just some other teams’.

The refs were somewhat lax about calling aggressiveness as opposed to LA Regional. I got a warning for ramming and I didn’t even know I was doing it! You guys were excellent opponents. Our drive system was too weak to escape your alliance pinning us to the edge of the field. It was a good game.

is there a poor little robot out there without safety glasses now?
