The brainstorming we were doing while working had a bunch of different tangents.
- How do we get our robot over the 4" bump in the middle of the field? Lots of ideas were thrown out: tank treads, some kind of ramp in front of wheels, bigger wheels, more wheels, hovercraft (just kidding).
- What kind of shooter to use? Spring catapult, pneumatic catapult, one wheel shooter.
- What should the hopper look like? Vertical, ramp, do we need one.
- Do we need a gate in front of the gatherer? What should that look like?
Tyler started working on making the schematics for a trial bump and bridge to test our future robot on.
The PR team worked on getting the Echo Press article all set up. They also sent an email to the PMMC (one of our major sponsors, check our sponsors page!) thanking them again for their support and updating them on our progress. The big PR development is that we are going to get our t-shirts ordered. They are going to look so awesome!!! There is a big surprise for the shirts which is going to be amazing. The team is super pumped.
