FRC Robots in Macy's Thanksgiving Parade...

Five FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) teams will be taking part in the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City on November 28, 2013 at 9am EST (it will be televised live on NBC):

Team 1538, The Holy Cows, from San Diego, Calif.;
Team 1477, Texas Torque, from The Woodlands, Texas;
Team 180, S.P.A.M., from Stuart, Fla.;
Team 16, The Bomb Squad, from Mountain Home, Ark.;
Team 25, Raider Robotix, from North Brunswick, N.J.

The teams will be leading the parade with their 2013 FRC ULTIMATE ASCENT robots which have been modified to perform tasks specifically fot the parade. The Texas Torque team’s robot will do the honor of cutting the ribbon to start the parade and the other robots will shoot confetti as they travel down the 2.5 mile parade route to Macy’s Herald Square. 

How awesome is that?!
