In the Bag !

baggedIt’s in the bag!

The Iron Riders robot, that is, as of 9:49 pm on Stop Build Day, February 19. (Over two hours before the deadline, woot!)

After an intense build season, culminating in marathon work sessions over the holiday weekend at mentor Charles Delahunt’s house, the 2012-13 Iron Riders robot is done. Well, done enough to get it officially sealed up until the competition on March 29-30. I missed the demo that night, but saw video evidence that it actually fired frisbees in the street about 30 feet.

There is plenty of work still to be done in, as Katie said, the second half of the build season. There are refinements to the robot, software still to write, t-shirts to make, other things to build, and lots of planning to bring us to the competition arena.

Thanks to everyone who has helped so far!
