We look forward to seeing everyone at events, and wish everyone good luck this season!
Clean and powerful machine. Excited to see this machine perform soon!

That is sick!!! I soooo look forward to seeing it in person!!! Best of luck to Y’all!!!
Nice robot, but as a great fan of your robot reveal for many years, where’s the rest ?
Haven’t you heard? Short reveal videos are in fashion this year.
Reveals in general have been sort of disappointing to me this year. All I want to see is a real-time video of a robot picking up a piece, driving it over to the grid, and scoring it. One camera angle, one shot, just show off the robot you made!
That being said, I am excited to see another classic 148 robot this year!
Unless it’s 1678. I want the censored teasers. It’s their brand. I hope they dont opt for the short vids in the future.
Aka the TikTok trend? YouTube shorts too. Apparently nobody has time to watch even a 2-minute video these days. Clearly as things get shorter and shorter, pretty soon we’re going to just be looking at one frame… oh wait, that’s a photo!
254 mastered the short reveal video back in 2019:
Team 254, NASA Ames Robotics "The Cheesy Poofs", presents our 2019 robot:
We don’t have time to film a reveal video most years, but due to popular demand, this time we put something together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCY2jt-uObE
Backlash will compete at the San Francisco Regional, Silicon Valley Regional, and FIRST Championship in Houston.
Team 254 is sponsored by NASA Ames Research Center, Apple, Google, Lockheed Martin, Innovation First International, Analog Device…
Back to the topic at hand, 148’s robot looks incredible and I can’t wait to see it in action
I don’t believe that was a true reveal, but a reveal of their climber. That video was uploaded 3 weeks after their first event in 2013.
That being said, they had a short true reveal the following season.

Seems like there’s plenty of short reveals this year. I look forward to seeing what 148 can do on the field!
