Hello. We are Team 6089, The Infinities.
We recently ran into the issue that our cube intake was interfering with our skyrise intake, because one is mounted directly above the other.
The cube intake would get stuck on the autoloader when raising our arm after picking up the skyrise piece. To fix this, we designed a cube intake that would be able to flex downward.
Both of these intakes are passive (i.e. they don’t require any motors or actuators).
Because this is somewhat difficult to visualize, we have made a video regarding its design.

We also made a video and VEXforum post about our skyrise intake (which we are particularly proud of):
