BOB  (2014)

Details

AN ENGINEERING MARVEL

Bob is TNT's only robot that is proudly inspired by a garbage can, and is one of the most efficient robots for playing Aerial Assist.​ One of TNT's most ingenious robots, Bob contains many complex and custom mechanisms in order to get the job done, including a shooting mechanism with options to score, shoot over the truss, and pass to another robot. Also with penumantics collecting arms, all of Bob's frame was custom fabricated from local fabricator and sponsor Darchuk's Fabrication. Creativity often comes with compromise, though. Bob tips the scale at just about 118 pounds.
