Wow. Probably the best magic intake i have seen throughout the season. Check out how it touches a ball and the ball gets taken up… Impressive.
Also, are those VEX LED lights? They seem to be programmed by the cortex. If not then i would probably say that they are illegal, because they do send back information to you.
The lights are Armacost RGB LED Tape Lights, no affiliation with VEX, and purely for decorative purposes. They are not programmed, but are instead controlled remotely, and are powered by a 9V removable backup battery. They will not be recieving any power during a match and their respective battery will be taken off for during matches, in order to prevent issues with legality.
The green lightning effects were made by shining a laser pointer through a bag of water. The lift is a four bar, very similar to 2880A’s, except only two motors, allowing for a six 393 high speed drive.
Thanks! My decision to have a six motor drive was inspired by your robot. I tried a few different low hanging mechanisms, but pneumatics were the most reliable and fast. The only issue is that you have to remove all the slop in the lift, which was a substantial challenge :rolleyes:
