This playlist includes our team intro video, our build updates, and our final reveal video.

In 2013, Robot In 3 Days showed thousands of teams how to build a FRC robot in 3 days.  The Ri3D concept helped raise the bar for many rookies with prototyping concepts and videos.   Inspired by Ri3D, team oRyon entered into the Ri3D network a week before the 2014 Kickoff.  The team is back again for 2015 with more people and more parts. The goal is to build a robot in 3 days to accomplish the FRC game.  Our focus last year was to design a simple robot that would accomplish the task well with limited resources. This year we have more (going together with the Ri3D theme) and have a machine shop available on Sunday. We are going to try and build a more capable robot while keeping within the mid-tier team level of complexity.
