Today we continued working on prototypes. We made a “corkscrew” prototype, a windmill prototype, a “gumball machine” prototype, and another conveyor belt prototype. Then, we presented our prototypes to the group, and talked about how they could work together as a system. We also talked about using no more than four motors in the final tower design. This year, chassis design and tower design are inextricably tied, so we need to make decisions soon regarding our tower design.
Tomorrow we will be meeting from 2-4:30 (ending a bit earlier)
