Under Pressure

We met on Saturday to keep working for a little while. Weekends are hard days to meet beacuse so many people on the team have family obligations and jobs. However, about 10 members showed up throughout the afternoon. The main project was re-making the gatherer prototype.Then we relaxed and play Rock Band for a while.

The gatherer prototype we created last week was a great proof of concept. However, we changed the design a little bit. We are going to have only one motor powering it. Plus, our last design got a little messed up while creating it (holes in wrong places, not the right size, etc.). So we re-made it and it works great! We are soooo close to picking a ball up off the ground. Just a couple more modifications on Monday and we will be able to do it.

Jenna worked on the business plan some more. We also came up with some goals for Week 3. The big goal is to pick a ball up off the ground and shoot it into a hoop. We also need to build the hoop apparatus.

After working for a while, we ordered pizza and played Rock Band. Build season is intense so it's good to take a break and have some fun. We played a 12 song set of Queen and a bunch of Bon Jovi. We also played Bydlon's favorite songs "Workin for the Weekend" and "We Built This City".
