Robot in 3 Days 2016 Announcement

Robot in 3 Days is proud to be back and bigger than ever for 2016. This year we will have 8 teams competing against the clock to build a robot in 72 hours.

We are continuing the trend of mixing professional, college and community based teams. We are excited by the impact the efforts are having in their areas through sharing and partnering with local teams.

We are also making a few changes for 2016. Teams have been asked to limit YouTube video releases to 1 video per day and we’re hoping this cuts back on the video clutter. Teams will be using the Ri3D Blog, Twitter/Vine and Facebook so make sure to follow and subscribe to get frequent updates.

We’ve also allowed for a twist in the “build rules” in which teams may choose to build more game function prototypes in place of finishing an actual bot. This will allow teams to cover more ideas and game angles and hopefully have a more diverse showing. We really have no idea if this will actually happen as some games need a complete robot to demonstrate the ideas… But maybe it will?

The 2016 teams are:

Ri3D 1.0
Team Indiana
Team oRyon
Snow Problem
Team Redacted
Team Tesla
The GreenHorns
Team Cockamamie (New team at USC lead by Billfred Leverette)

Also free free to enjoy some preseason pony hype.

And some horribly awesome STEM rap music.
