Some Fun Facts

  • This is our first robot with waterjet parts
  • We initially named our robot after the DC anti-hero "Black Adam" but we did not have time to anodize our parts
  • The final name of the robot came from the CAD assembly file that was never changed
  • We used a suction cup system to hold the hatch covers
  • Our intial shooter design could throw the balls over 25 feet into the air
