This Friday afternoon we are getting out our HONDA robot. This thing runs on hydraulic motors, powered by a HONDA DHV gas engine. Bada$$, but we can only run it outside (gas fumes are bad mmmmmmmK). We might put a T-shirt launcher on it for football/ soccer games, and we can switch out a paintball turret equppied with ultrasonic sensor systems to locate targets up to 26+ feet. Bob and weave fool. The seniors even made a 'garage' to lock it up (indeed, robotix is an expensive hobbie/ educational venture. HONDA bot = 5K!)

These next ones are our VEX special ops unit. They had to pick up and move different sized objects in a 4' x 8' arena, then drop them over a wall to score points. They have been approved by the 501st Legion.
We also do some hydraulic end effector bots and NXT LEGO bots in the beginning of the course.
