In most robots I have seen, I have noticed a very heavy reliance on gears. In particular, a reliance on gears for the movement of parts that involve carrying or pushing an external object such as a ball or ring using the robot. I thought it would be more helpful for teams if they had a component that was capable of doing more than what a gear could do with less space and time consumed for many purposes. Hence, I have created the Omni-Directional Gear- a component that can move other VEX parts in a multitude of directions.
