I’ve already started designing a disc-shooting robot for the Frisbee Frenzy™ game, really excited to see how frisbees will tie in with the water pools the game will have!

Because Virtual World Championship Celebration is happening on the same date, I need the community to decide on what to do with the Community-Made Virtual Worlds:

  • I want Community-made Roblox Virtual Worlds to be cancelled
  • I want Community-made Roblox Virtual Worlds to continue on the date of April 25th
  • I want Community-made Roblox Virtual Worlds to be on another date

I was always wondering; if V5 was so great, why isn’t there a V5 2?

In all honesty, I think it will have something to do with the autonomous demonstration that was supposed to happen. Probably the LIDAR sensor gets announced?

Possibly LiDAR, as that is what GOAT/WPI1 used for their fully autonomous robot.
