The initial release of v5 brains has a Drow for GDC image somewhere within the brain, as an Easter egg.
They are secretly making V4 hardware waterproof, but the water game will only allow teams to use V5 hardware…
V6 is already in development at Area 51
Dude, we transferred the artifacts to MIT for further study… My peeps there improved it and are ready to beta V8!
Further reason to storm Area 51
The promised V5 ADI port expander never shipped because a new firmware update will allow the V5 brain to connect more 3-wire devices simply by using Y-cables on the 8 ADI ports. For instance, if you want to connect 16 bumper switches, you’ll soon be able to plug in a Y-cable into each ADI port and then plug each button into the end of the ADI cable!
To access these ports, just repeat the letter of the “root” port multiple times. If you have a single Y-cable, your two inputs are “AA” and “AAA”. You can Y off a Y off a Y off a Y to get ports “AAAAAAAAAAAAA”, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAA”, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA”, and more.
If we all Naruto run and storm VEX HQ, they can’t stop us all from leaking all the water games.
I see what you did there.
I sea what you did there.
Seriously, water you doing not taking advantage of obvious puns?
Edit: I’m shore you sea it now. There’s no use in going off the deep end with puns, though I think I did jump the shark there.
Edit 2: wow, these puns are just flowing out of me. I’d better put a plug in it before I overflow this post with bad puns.
Dude nobody was serious about the Area 51 raid but now…
MY EYES ARE BURNING
What is king DRow’s favorite type of precipitation? Reign!
I mean if anyone testifies DRow he’d take you all the way to the GDC Quart.
Well that’s enough water talk, let’s just talk about the current season
The towers in TT look suspiciously like cups… anyone know how much liquid they’ll hold? It might be a hint towards when we’ll get the actual water game.
lets just say its 2020mL. what then?
Then the cups are very small… but we have our answer. To more than one question.
Vex does not tell anyone, but that they can add more smart ports to the v5 with a firmware update. This is all because they will release a new 50 port motor. The extra ports are required for the bandwidth.
Okay, the cups on Towers are 193.41 cubic inches.
On day 1 (January 1st) of 1934, there was a flood in Montrose, California. From Montrose to the nearest shoreline is a mere 31.6 miles. So we have our water connection.
To drive to Vex HQ from Montrose, it would take just over 22.5 hours.
So, we will get our water game from Vex in ‘22. The just more than the 5th month.
Vex always reveals the new game around that same date.
Coincidence??? I THINK NOT!!!
Don’t be fooled, guys. Vex knows Exactly what they’re doing in this one. It only takes someone dedicated enough to put together the pieces.
That took too much work. But now we know…
And now Vex is pushing their new product. Hoping to convert people, and make them buy a whole new set of hardware from them.
As a normal fourm member I strongly reccomend all vex teams by Torx screws and Torx drivers from the VEXRobotics.com web store. They greatly improve building speed and efficiency. But don’t go buying anything from Robosource. They use non VEX brand steel which makes them not compatible with a VEX Robotics Competition robot.
I’ve been hearing rumors that the Kazakhstani government is bribing VEX to use BO1 instead of BO3. And I think that @Connor1814V is in on it, that’s why he tried to go to a tournament there before he was found out and is pretending like it didn’t happen.
Sounds bout right
