    I like the simplicity of Robert Paradiso's. It also looks like what I imagine a legless android zombie would look like trying to get up the stairs (possibly to eat your computer's processor).

    Good job everyone!

    I like the design of Pokey, but why is it so slow?

    I think the stair bear is great and absolutely deserved the win (atleast out of the 4 posted). I love the custom wheels cut out of foam for climbing the stairs: simple and effective. Great idea and well executed. I also enjoyed Robert Paradiso's bot. Keep it simple, I love it.

  • Congratz to the winners! I hope vNext of this competition is not during the FIRST FRC robotics season, and I'll put in a submission.
