I have recently had an idea for a ball intake and i want to see if anyone can see any major flaws in it or disadvantages.
So basically, it stems from this: Half of the balls on the field are on top of a cap, (not including preloads). Most teams are happy to knock them off and then chase after them, wasting signifigant time. My intake idea would basically be a rubber band roller on a hinge that can raise and lower passively. ( i am attaching a highly proffessional diagram) That way, we could pick up balls faster than most other teams and gain a big advantage in the flags.
