Answered: FUTURE Foundation Challenge Design Challenge

This question came in via email:

This is a good question, as not every challenge is VEX-focused. If we look at the requirements, they say, “build a robot or robotic machine using VEX components that entertains and/or amuses.” The controller is a key component of any robot, and so the controller in this challenge must be either a PIC or Cortex VEX Controller.
