Creative Problem Solving, #3

Click here for a trip to City Daily Photo, transporting you around the world every day.


How to quick load your robot with Frisbees so that it can continue tossing them during the Autodesk Oregon FIRST Robotics competition at the Memorial Coliseum on March 9, 2013.

Keep at it while your teammates look on. The best I could understand it, those students on the right controlled all the movements of the robot--joystick, computer, something like that.

Reloaded and off to shoot at the target slots at the opposite end of the arena.


See the flying Frisbee on the left of the photo? That's one of theirs--you can tell from the bright green loading chute. Once out of Frisbees, the robot got sent back to the loader--you can see he's already got some stacked and ready.

Intense concentration on the face of the Frisbee-loader. The sequence repeated until the session ended. I have not idea who won, but I know creative problem solving when I see it. And this was a whole lot of it!
