Cats love the iq fields (especially next level).
Dogs love the vrc fields.

Data please to support this assertion :slight_smile:
only see VRC furry friends, no VIQC …

I don’t have any pictures or videos, if that’s what you want.
But when I was on an IQ team during next level, our cat would always get on the field and would rub up against the hanging bar, until she got scared off by our robot with it’s 3:1 drive ratio.
Our dog loves to stretch out on the vrc foam tiles.

Yay, after you spend a few hours trying to teach your lovely pet some robotics tricks, you get a new appreciation of the relative ease and repeatability of the programming your furryless V5 companion.

On the other hand, many programmers have reported seeing gremlins peeking from the V5 brain ports after a sleepless night of coding the autonomous…

Hold on, the gremlins doing the coding or the programmers? Because they’re relatively the same thing. (Programmers please don’t yell at me)

Yes, there were quite a few occasions when the robot was doing weird stuff on the field and the programmer swore that they never coded that, and that gremlins taking over the robot control must be the only and the most logical explanation.

To which I must agree, because they were the ones who’ve seen the gremlins, and you never argue about the logic with the programmer.

My dog Chikoo’s current favorite toy is a Turning Point ball. Here she is showing it off. Unfortunately she did destroy the ITZ cone she was given before.
