Sab-BOT-age received the Industrial Design Award. The Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. Their product and process reflect the mission of FIRST, by demonstrating sound technology development from start to finish. According to the judges:
- This team went straight to a focus on speed and cube placement, then mixed things up by turning their lift inside out. Say it with me...oh, my lordy.... Congratulations 1640, Sab-BOT-age!
