Seeing as how robot arm was an event quite recently and the rules have not changed dramatically, how many of you plan to recycle past arms rather than rebuild?
On another note, the tiebreakers are quite interesting and seem to prefer arms that are not autonomous.

If anyone is thinking about making an autonomous robot arm, watch this video first...

I can't compete, but making a robot arm is definitely on my bucket list of things to do before I turn 30.

Pretty much the same as 2013 dimensions wise and build wise. Objects and bonuses changed.
