After a long pandemic hibernation we dusted off the tools, warmed up the laser cutter, repaired the 3D printer, refilled the coffee pot and set off to build our highest performing robot to date. Named for the Norse God of Archery, this fast and nimble sniper was quick to grab balls and precisely put them on target with its Computer-Vision assisted aiming. In addition to securing playoff berths at every event it competed in - including NE Championship - Skadi took home the judges awards for both Innovation in Controls and overall Quality.View the technical binder

This tote stacker parks itself at the human terminal and stacks up boxes sky high with its claw arms that lift for another to slide into place.
This Magazine fed, shell ejecting T-shirt cannon mounted to an experimental Mecanum drive test bed was a fun learning opportunity for new team members and was a hit with local school and town events. Capable of a 3 round per minute rate of fire and the ability to drive sideways as it strafed the crowd of pep rallies and sporting events.
