Trashbag Chic

Trashcan chic #1.jpg A second round of heavy rain is sweeping through the competition “polo” grounds but the robots continue to motor on. Tarps, umbrellas, and other forms of waterproofing are being pressed into service to keep the projects dry. We haven’t seen any “magic blue smoke” yet rising from machines, but it’s still early.

In the meantime Missouri S&T has been recognized by the judges for “donating” their great-looking tent to the robot starting line, where teams whose machines are on the course can watch in a degree of comfort. Aluminator is still under the “big top” while the Miners are still trying to resolve some code issues. This is an all-day event so there is still optimism for getting the machine on the course.
