Sorry it’s only a link; stoopit TV station does not allow embedding. Don’t they know information wants to be free?
How my kid defines productivity (sorry for the shameless yoinking of the title, Snag). Yes, there is a Young Zombie in that viddy.
Although the team I mentor is not mentioned, there are a couple photos of our robot in the associated slideshow, look for 2830.
The Build Team Captain in the pit behind ours brought a camelback to the competition; today I am bringing one filled with beer.
Also, missus zombie was programming autonomous code the other day which freaked out our test robot and it destroyed a solid core door.
[EDIT UPDATE, if anyone cares that much]:
Our team did the best it’s ever done, placing in the top third of the field and being noted by many of the best teams for a couple of very successful runs; especially at balancing multiple robots on the bridge. Unfortunately, our autonomous code was 404 until the last match so when the alliances for the finals were selected we didn’t quite make the cut. We were, however, placed in as alternate replacement robot and were on deck in case a robot died during competition.
Young Zombie’s team had a very tough regional, with one episode involving the robot falling over from atop the bridge and snapping a mechanism in two when it hit. We did have the opportunity to play on an alliance together and worked well, but the bridge balancing at the end was not successful due to a ball being trapped under the bridge; we were unable to see it from our POV to clear it out.
This all makes more sense if you have watched some of the matches on UTuber. I am a little surprised no videos from the Wisconsin regional are up yet.
[EDITED again, because holy fuck did I go overboard on commas]
MOAR EDIT. View from the killing floor, as we are queued up for the next match:
Our team and robot, watching the finals matches on the jumbotron from the pits. It doesn’t look as crowded as it actually was because most teams have loaded out their pits, and we had broken down the pit halfway. We were waiting to see if we got called as an alternate, and all we needed was our robot, controllers, and charged batteries.
