Visually Aging/Dating Roborio

At competition this week, we went through inspection and our inspector commented on the age of our roborio. All he did was look at it and could tell that it was a few years old. He was right, but we have no idea how he could tell. It wasn’t dirty or showing any signs of aging. Is there some visual indication of the roborios?

Edit: He hadn’t looked in our driver station or even powered on our robot before making the comment.

You might not have noticed any signs of age but I assure you they are there. It’s often little things that you would miss when using you own stuff and living with it. I be the some of the lettering is slightly faded compared to newer Rios. Inspectors can see 20+ robots an event, I would not be surprised if some of them have gotten good at picking up on small things.
