2013 Season- Week 6 Update

February 26, 2013 in Competition, Slideshow by Scott Rippetoe

We have been very productive so far in this build season. We have several prototypes we are considering for the final design including intake, shooter, and a climbing mechanism. We have completed the CAD of the field as well as the construction of the practice field.  Intake has become a top priority for the CAD team. While the mechanical team works diligently on perfecting our shooting mechanism, the programming team configures tracking software. We’re hoping to have both Bravo and Charlie robots completely constructed by the end of the building season.

Texas Torque Demos at CISD Sci://Tech Demo

February 2, 2013 in Outreach, Slideshow by Kolton

Saturday, February 2nd, nine members of Texas Torque traveled to the Lone Star Convention Center to demonstrate Velociriptar and the fire fighting robots. As part of the Sci://Tech exposition, the team answered questions about robotics, engineering, and FIRST in general. The elementary school aged kids were both fascinated and frightened by the past year’s robot. We met a lot of interesting people and are looking forward to the years when those who attended will be members.
