FUTURE Foundation Robot Construction Challenge

The FUTURE Foundation exists to advance robotics and technology through education.

Build a mascot for your team out of VEX Robotics components. Your mascot can cheer for your team, dance, shoot (safely!) confetti, wave flags or anything else you can picture your mascot robot doing to support your team.

Our team also found it fun to have our robot display our teams logo.

He waves flags based on which team (Red or Blue) wins a match and dances around. When you look at Rob's outline, he looks a little bit like a...

Our mascot is designed to soar above the crowd because it is mounted on a Vex metal backpack and integrated stand which can be worn as a backpack or set up on display in a pit area. The robot can be controlled manually or set up to run autonomously meeting visitors that it detects using Vex range finders. The beak and head are powered by Vex servos while the body and neck are powered by a high torque motor geared at seven to one. Each wing is a double four bar using a combination of chain and sprocket and links powered by one high torque motor geared to twenty one to one. Sound is provided...
