FIRST Follow-up

by Bryon Moyer

March 29, 2012 at 7:10 AM

On Monday we talked about the Seattle-area FIRST robotics team from Liberty High School in the Issaquah district. We now have some video of their robot in action. You can see it both delivering and retrieving basketballs, and at the end, they attempt to balance on the ramp. Will they make it?

Bear in mind, this was a rookie team. They also shared with me (in the spirit of coopetition) a video of one of the final matches.

Nothing but net…

(Well, almost…)

Career. Robotics.
