pic: triple-play vex robot

This is a robot I made for a fundraising event at an art fair in our park. It mimics the 2005 triple play game on about a 1/3 scale. It can reach up to 41" with the 2 joints of its arm and lifts newspaper tetrahedrons that are 1’ on each edge.

Is anyone else reminded of the Triplets from '05 ?

The drive system really reminds me of our 2005 drive system though, minus one omni wheel.


I actually had 2 omni wheels in front but I decided to make the second gearing higher (it was originally 1:5) and I only had enough lock collars afterward for one wheel in the front.

So you think that the 2005 game was the best one as well? :smiley:
