2012 – Edgewalker

Rebound Rumble

Rebound Rumble was played by two competing alliances that tried to score as many basketballs in their hoops as they can in a 2 minute and 15 second match.

Edgewalker

Edgewalker ran on a 4-CIM, 8” pneumatic wheel drive that could swiftly chase balls, and traverse the field bumps. Our polycord ball intake smoothly gathered balls, with another polycord system that prevented two balls from ever becoming stuck. Our vertical polycord elevator ran independently to the intake, and fed the shooter one ball at a time. Our shooter is mounted on a gear-turret, giving us 360 degrees of freedom. Finally, the ‘flippers’ enabled us to bat down the bridge and assisted our balancing.
