FLL - Some Pic's/Progress

Hey Guys,
Though we are getting a lot done every week, it seems that much of our time is being devoted to eating popcorn...with the new seasoning flavors...well, you get the picture. Everybody is working hard, and the build team is just finishing up with modifying the design of our robot. It's well, kind of complex. Using one of CLGfive's tactics, we have built our robot on a gathering attachment...more on that when we get sooner to the competition. Here are some pictures of whats going on. So sit back, grab some popcorn, and enjoy!

FLL - More News From Thursday's Meeting

As Bryce explained yesterday, we've decided on the team name, "Brix", and we are starting some T-Shirt design. We've also been making some major breakthroughs in both of our team sectors, Building and Programming as well as The Project Team. Being that I'm on the Building and Programming side, I can't too well explain whats going on with our Smart Moves project (stay tuned for a guest post next week), but I can say that we have made some big moves with the designing of our robot. For obvious reasons, we can't give you specifics, but the gist of our model is that it is built to make tough journeys across the board easier, and complete missions without the need of a third motor. Based on a team decision we may or may not post pictures, but I have a good feeling about our position so far. Stay tuned for more Brix news and some more team centered blog settings!

Clgfive - Dragster Preview

The other day I had the idea of building a motorcycle robot, but due to some restrictions with the size of the NXT brick, it became a dragster- a very slow dragster. I'll post some pictures later, along with some thoughts for the final version.
