Being able to lift yourself rather than relying on your partner could certainly be an advantage, but what position do you want your partner to be in so that they hold you up after you raise the lift? They can’t be directly underneath you because that’s where the lift is, and if they’re just on one side of you I’d imagine you’d just fall down. I guess they could push balls underneath you and then just touch you, but I’m not sure that’d get you 4"
Wouldn’t you have to lift yourself 18 inches above the playing field so that larger robots could support you? Otherwise I could see some un-happy robot accidentally pushing you over… Looks pretty cool though!
