and party everyday…
ok. here is my prediction. Every day in the upcoming week, the new robot (name yet to be fashioned) will look consiterably different
CHAINED THE FIRST TWO WHEELS!!! yay!
emily brought over a beautiful piece of electronics mastery that bud made, and julia started hooking up all the wires from the master circut breaker to the speed controlers. kersten is now the master chain breaker. i, on the other hand, had some *difficulty* with the chain.
also built a mini-turret for programming (it’s not quite finished)to prgram camera with. mieter saw works wonderfully with aluminum.. (heh heh heh)
went to IDEO to use the arbor press to press bearings into wheels!
we still need 2 hubs for wheels.
focus our efforts on hub-capping the wheels, which means that we will have one side that will run like a dream, and one that will will run like 2/3 of a dream. so that also means chain
more electronics. attaching wires to speed controlers takes longer than you think it does. maybe by the end we can mount the electronics on.
perhaps we could also design a battery mount and make it?
turret design, exact-ifyed
order a sporcket (we seem to have one missing…why they gave us an odd number i don’t know)
order hubs (2)
make calls about steel/aluminum rods to hold up the shower curtain
make calls to alumimum places to get quotes on mounting plate for turret.
ok, over and out. comment something if i forgot it.
