F.i.r.s.t. Robotics Competition


Recommended Posts

Since alot of people here are geeks like me, I thought it'd be cool to post up this year's game for the First Robotics Competition. FRC is a competition where high school teams around the world are given a game in the beginning of January, and 6 weeks to design, build, and program a robot to compete in that game. The only things we are given are some parts that we could use to build a basic chassis, some motors and electronics, and a CompactRIO FGPA controller. And a rulebook. The rest is up to each team to decide. Here is the animation for this year's game


And here is a link to the press release where Dean Kamen(founder of F.I.R.S.T. and renown inventer of 440 patents, including the Segway) and will.i.am. from the Black Eyed Peas release this year's game. "LOGO MOTION™" Game Revealed by Dean Kamen and will.i.am to 50,000 High-School Students at 2011 FIRST® Robotics Competition Kickoff

Also, I think it would be pretty awesome if the Hak5 team decides to go out to some of the competitions in March-April. There will be local ones in every state and the International Championships are held in St. Louis, Missouri.

Of course, if you would rather visit my team instead, we'll be at the Chesapeake Regional(3/17-3/19) in Baltimore, MD and the Philadelphia Regional(4/7-4/9) in Philadelphia PA :)

edit: on a side note, does the forum not let you use caps in a thread title? I tried to make F.I.R.S.T. but it seems like it changed it to lower for me...
