A message from Ri3D 2014

We are extremely excited to begin this years Robot in 3 Day Challenge after the FRC Kickoff! It’s hard to believe in just over 3.5 days from now we will (most hopefully) have a robot built to play the 2014 FRC Game.

We knew after last year’s build that we needed to make Ri3D bigger and better each year. That’s why when Dr. Joe and Andy Baker reached out to us wanting to collaborate through competition, we just knew we couldn’t turn down the challenge. And now, at the 11th hour, we’ve welcomed a 4th team, Team O-RYON working out of Rice. We hope that the builds continue to grow in this fashion and even plan to open enrollment to compete in the 2015 Ri3D challenge if our 2014 model proves to be successful.

We’ve gotten a lot of feed back and we feel that we are taking steps to improve our show quality. We’ve brought in a production team to produce higher quality video content. We’ve expanded opportunities to engage the community through the Ri3D Network. We’ve expanded our work space to enhance the quality of our builds and we’ve brought in friends and family from around the country to help us along the way. We’re looking forward to what these enhancements bring and to having a lot of fun along the way.

We know that there are many ways teams will utilize our content and that’s why we challenge you to look to our builds as a source of inspiration and not information. We hope that our content inspires you through education and through entertainment. That will mean many things to many teams but if you keep that goal in mind, your team will be successful in utilizing our videos.

With that said we wish you a merry FIRSTmas and can’t wait to see what FRC 2014 brings. The FRC community is what inspires us after all!
