pic: Weighted Companion Crate

We decided this year that we wanted the best crate at Kansas City and Denver, but don’t think that you can match this pure awesomeness. We are still working on getting the hearts painted on along with some final shading. At the regionals, we’ll have 3-d foam pieces attaches so it should look even better.

Best. Crate. Ever.

I love the wooden cut out hearts that are on top of it that’ you’re going to add to the sides.

Anything you are going to put below the crate, or just keep it black? Maybe team #?

Those are actually the foam corners that are resting on the top, waiting to be painted. They will be attached at the regionals so that they aren’t destroyed during shipping. We might put our team number down at the bottom, but we will be spray-painting the sides, saying “the cake is a lie”.

Oh my god. I love your crate. Portal is the best game of all time. and the cake is a lie.

I have seen it all… I can die a happy man.

My jaw literally dropped! Nice! you guys are totally awesome!


Lets just hope he does’nt meet the same fate as his companion cube brother.

FTW. Our crate is just flames n’ stuff. Love the companion cube.

Let’s hope that Valve doesn’t get upset…

That is a very good point

They should be honored by our tribute to their game.

But WE were going to do this!
Except we’re so short on time we probably won’t be painting it.
Congrats for doing it instead, it looks awesome.

Once we finish painting it and get the 3-d effects attached, I will post another picture to demonstrate its full pwnage

(I am sorry…I have to)

The cake is a lie

Awesome crate though, very nicely done.

!!! Awesome!

Oh, my team would totally kill you for this crate

(nice paint job)

Yeah seriously if i could have this crate I would. So if it happens to you know disappear… I’m sorry. Also the cake is not a lie.

“This was a triumph.
I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.”

This is awesome. However, as my teammates are pointing out right now, look at me still posting when there’s robotics to do… :o

Aperature Science
We do what we must because we can
for the good of all of us
except the ones who are dead

But theres no sense crying over every mistake
You just keep on trying until you run out of cake
