2921B Free Range Robotics (NZ) Teaser

No way! That was not the intention… :wink:

Yes, plenty of pneumatics :smiley:

And yes…

~George

Fine pneumatic assisted 2 motor lift geared at 1:7. Bring on more pics doooode.

Is that pneumatic tank in the front pic held on by anything? I don’t see any structure there, and it’s not the best idea to have it sitting lodged between the lift motors…

Gyroscope hmmmmmmmmm?

Yep, it is secured very nicely by a couple of stand-offs and then some thick cable ties. :slight_smile:

We like our sensors :wink:

~George

Ok, what we have now decided to do is a pre-reveal “quiz”…

10 multichoice questions are below, each correct one will get you a point. Whoever gets the most points wins a free Free Range Robotics badge (either collect at our pits or we can come to your pits) :smiley: Answers (and robot reveal) will be posted here tomorrow morning before we leave for the convention centre. Rules: If you are from New Zealand or happen to already know our robot (somehow), we would prefer if you didn’t enter so the fun isn’t ruined.
