Recent Cupertino Team Building with Apple
Cupertino Team Building events with Apple always produce something special. This event was no different with a blazing fast build time in the top 2% of all teams anywhere at 30:56 just 5 minutes off the world record held by Chowbotics of 25:57. Their time of 30:56 puts the self proclaimed “Dream Team” (pictured above) in just a handful of teams to approach 30 minutes, and maybe 2 dozen teams who have eclipsed the 35 minute mark, out of thousands of teams who have competed over three years.
We hosted Apple at our favorite offsite Cupertino team building location, a relaxed and low key environment with ample parking and the ability to make as much noise as we needed. In this case that was important because the battles were truly outrageous. Although we started with the traditional format of team versus team, once the 5th team completed their robot all order went to chaos. I made the call to go directly to the all-bot melee – since that is what they were doing anyway … lol.
We successfully completed five melee rounds with the yellow team destroying everyone until … the introduction of “Two Claws” – a robot team building first and the other amazing thing to come from Apple’s event. Two teams cannibalized one robot’s attack arm and added it to the other robot – thus creating a two armed fighting monster! This is more nuanced and subtle from a robot fighting perspective since voltage is a zero sum game. In our robots, we push the limits of shared voltage to provide the most juice possible while also avoiding “time-outs.” This team was savvy enough in both the building modification and in the way they drove to manage the voltage and have actual success.
It should be noted that this was the first time we have seen a modification actually benefit a team in battle. For all the “creative” adaptations we have witnessed, this one actually worked and they beat the yellow team – Goliath – and the other teams by utilizing a menacing double alternating attack ensemble. Similar to the “wildcat” offense in the NFL, however, teams adapted to Two Claws and a second victory was elusive.
Thank you to Apple for a wonderful event and some truly inspiring battles!
