Hey hey hey! first point of the season
so today we talked about different designs
1)for picking up balls
-scoops up balls/ pushs them into a ball storage area with a paddle wheel type design. it woudl span the entirty of the front of the robot so to pick up any balls that come our way. Hits about in the middle of the ball so the ball isn’t pushed into the ground. Possibly could have “protecters” that come out and protect the front “harvester” on defense. i think we’ve all agreed that this is a good idea.
2)lower Goal and Higher Goal
-we have realized there is no rule against sitting in front of the bottom goal and blocking it for the entire round. ick!!!
therefore, we are thinking more about the higher goal than we were yesterday. catapult? we’ve definatly said no to pnumatics. We’re thinking maybe a spring loaded something…
