Mr. Slurpy uses rollers to slurp game pieces up into his hopper, or roll them back out into a goal. He uses 2 small VEX motors (2-Wire Motor 269) to spin his wheels in both directions to either suck up or drop off his game pieces.
Mr. Slurpy can hold up to three game pieces, using his lexan hopper.
The program on Mr. Slurpy allowed the arm to stop at each of three goal heights, along with other clever stuff.
