Matt, Asa... this one's for you
It seems we are long over due to check in on our favorite FRC team, FIRST 2102 Team Paradox. They've been designing and building since kick-off, January 7, and now, according to Bill's Blog there is less than two weeks before the end of build.
Matt and Asa are team founders, and since they are studying way out east, they miss the smell of the metal shop, the sound of the machines grinding aluminum, music blaring, and the sight of a robot coming together. For them, I popped over to the metal shop... the truth is, I missed the smell, too. Here is what I found, enjoy!
Kyla and Andy, and dinnertime.
A chassis. Real descriptive, I know. Actually, I don't know, but Asa and Matt will have fun figuring this all out, and so, I don't have to!
Hey, it's a chassis and a Rebound Rumble Ball.
This. This is gorgeous. It's El Gabe Box.
I think this means a serious upgrade to wiring and electronics.
Andy, Gabe, Maria, and Geoff.
Let's see... new guy, and Chester, and Alex J., Andy, Kyle's shoulder, and Greg, and Tots. Plus, part of Darrahl's handsome head.
Guy I don't know, yet. (*update: nice to *meet* you, Alex D.) Greg, Andy, Gabe, Victoria, Kyle, and Tots, and some wood, and the big shop door that rolls up. I love this place. I love these people.
Well, guys. This is either going to satisfy your appetites for robotics, or it's gonna make you hungry for more. Either way, I hope you like what you see.
