L is for the way you look at me (with that super dooper cool camera we have that's fully functional! Yay! We're using it to aim our little hooky things to pick up the totes and such.)
O is for the only one I see (Since we're basically here every single day. The next day, and then the next day, and then the next day, and then the next day, and then the next...)
V is very, very extraordinary (The robot can pick up two totes and a recycling bin at the same time! Wow! Truly extraordinary!)
E is even more than anyone that you adore can... (We will love you forever, you hunk of metal.)
Ah yes. We had our open house yesterday. It was basically the day we consecrated (or consummate, if you swing that way) our love to the Guillotine. Many families of our very own Protonians came to see how the robot was doing, and we had chili hotdawhgs made by PLovey. Thank you!!!
We've made significant progress in every part of the club, as our robot is completely up and running! Woo hoo! Three days before the bag date too! Today, we have just been working on tweaks. For example, our robot is over the weight limit, and we have been putting it on a diet and exercise program in order to shave a few pounds. (We're just shaving off some metal bits and swiss cheesing some stuff). Electronics is finishing some connections and attaching the limit switches, while the programming team is ready to practice and refine their autonomous code. The team is also working on the two plastic side shields to go on the robot, and the fabric to get our team number on the robot. Finally, our dedicated CAD engineers are virtually done with the bill of parts. Each robot we've made is quite the bucket of dough.
And today, we made history by coming in on a Sunday. Woohoo. Many woohoos!
Also, we're trying to name our robot, while making the finishing touches on our robot. Here are some of the names we've come up with:
- Tweedle Dee + Tweedle Dum
- Teeter + Totter
- Marie Antointote + Ropes Pierre
- Mermaid Man + Barnacle Boy
- Bill + Ted
- Haul + Totes
Feel free to express your opinion to anyone on the team or right here on this post!
Polish that robot up, Team Pronto!
