We had first heard of the Toy 2.0 challenge at the VEX World's Competition.
When we were first introduced our brains were only focused on the VEX, so we quickly put it aside to concentrate on our next match. However a week after we got back from Kentucky, we started thinking of different ideas of toys just for fun. Before we knew it we had over ten designs written on various pieces of paper. We thought that it wouldn't hurt to submit them all.
When we got the results, we were very surprised to see that out of the ten ideas we submitted, three of them got accepting!! What was even more surprising was that only ten ideas in total got accepted, and we were three of those ideas.
However even though we were overjoyed that three of our ideas got accepted, this meant a LOT of work. Not only did we have to make three designs, but also three prototypes and three final projects. Not to mention all of this took place during the school year, so we had school and homework on our priorities list as well!!!
But we plowed through and managed to get three, working, prototypes done in time for the final competition. :)
The Vectorb was the design that won the Toy 2.0 Challenge. It is a round, circular ball with six fans strategically placed around the surface which, theoretically, would give it the ability to fly.
