|FIRST LEGO League @E-Bots|
We called this day "attachment day" because today we all were creating attachments that might soon be implemented into our robot (once we make one!). Most of our team were focusing on the fish attachment because it weilded more then 40 points and could be done in less then 10 seconds! In this mission we were trying to collect all fish, the germs, knock the ball and even dispense the groceries! Dispensing the groceries was our hardest challenge. The picture to the left is one of our prototypes, and is the best one we have at the time. Unfortunatly, there isnt lots of space for the robot and the wall doesnt always drop. This version of the fish catcher was created by lots of our team members, such as purav and jeremy. As you can see, after this busy building challenge, there are lots of peices left on the table! We had to get ready for a big cleanup!
While we were creating attachments, a very innovative member of our team named kevin thought of an amazing attachment we could use for grocery table! On the left is his incredible idea, even though its still in its early prototype stages. The food is stored in the brick container, and is then moved to the table. Once it hits the table, it dispenses and releases all of the food inside. Now, most of you are probably saying "Wont it all fly out of the table?" Well, the design has a yellow wall which stops exactly that. We hope to see great things about this attachment in the near future! Look below for some other things we made today!
