For those of you following the recent news about changes to FTC, the blog has been updated with some additional information on the sensors and more. Read about it here.
I get the impression that there's not a lot of finalized answers just yet about the final "kit," whatever form it may take. There's also been no official word (that I can find) about whether VEX will still be allowed in the competition. There is mention that 12 teams will be demonstrating the new product at World Festival in April and those of us from the blog who will be in attendance will do our best to get pictures and more information.
