Last weekend the first ‘Round Up’ game of the New Zealand sesaon was played and Lynfield College showed us all how to play the game. We are certain that their robot or one of its (copied) descendants will be in the winning alliance in 2011! What can it do? Well lets just say a whole lot, and more… Scoring multiple tubes (tick), descoring (tick), autonomous scoring (tick) and that is just the beginning.
Sorry but we seem to be suffering a camera gremlin in New Zealand so you will have to wait until the worlds to see it.
Oh yes, one more thing high hanging (in autonomous) yes it can be done. We just wish we had video of it.
Hey it is cold enough in New Zealand to be a Northern January so I guess the team must have got confused, we should have told the team to slow down. Then again the Chinese robot that was in the aliance that won the Worlds was a descendant of the robot that won the first game of ‘Clean Sweep’ in NZ.
so NOBODY in the crowd (parents, friends) had a camera??
or even people in the team!!
sheesh guys how hard it is to DOCUMENT things??
i really hope a pic comes up though
doesnt have to be a clear pic
just a general concept of high hanging
After meeting you guys at worlds, I’d be more surprised if you couldn’t do all of that by now! That being said, it’s very cruel to tease us like this. KTOR and the rest of the Philadelphia area teams at least want to know who we’ll be playing in the finals this year. Good luck to all of you this year, and we’ll see you in Dallas!
P.s. I think we beat you to the first event of the season by a few weeks, AND we posted pictures!
He meant first NZ event, we do a LOT of them
as for the cameras, a few people had them lying around but we generally end up using them for people-pictures - it was a VERY social scrimmage with only 12 robots in attendance anyway.
Might be photos in july sometime
Before you post any pictures please think about how many 254 rip offs there were this year and how lame that was. Let teams design for themselves, it makes things more fun. Plus you can have a bit more fun just teasing everybody by telling its capabilities but no pictures.
