Hey guys I was wondering if you had any feed back for robots in the new 2014 board. Also do you guys have any more leaked info on the new board

I would build a stacking robot and a color sorting robot because I'm pretty sure there will be stacking and color sorting

I wouldn't because of the lack of vertical motion.

I would build a color sorter/universal claw that can reach up at least 15 inches and can color sort effectively. If you make a universal claw you can add a color sorter onto it and it could score a lot depending on what the game is.

Well, what I am doing is creating a group of programs that will use sensors to aid any robot with movement. For example, I am going to use the IR Sensors for various tasks, such as following the line, detecting when something is really near, etc.

Also, just like Jesus said, create a universal claw that can aid you in many tasks that might be on the Botball game board.

What I am doing is creating a series of claw designs to help aid us in many different tasks. So, if color sorting were to be on the board (I am pretty sure it will be), I would have a sturdy, nice claw design that would be able to pick them (and I mean like poms or CUBES) up no problem.

Hey everyone! So I had a few questions on these new hangers on the new 2014 game board. First off, I think the new game is simple and all the tasks can simply be done. How many points is Botguy on the excersize bench? I haven't been able to get on team homebase so I'm sorry if I seem an idiot. Also, the hangers, I think the might be replacing the pink and blue boosters. Isn't the excersize bench just a blue cube? I'm thinking it would be wise to start thinking of designs for a Universal Claw that will be able to pick up and stack hangers sufficiently. Just take it into consideration. Thanks!
