Reflections For This Meeting: 

Lego works great when you use more metal parts then the plastic parts to actually hold the Lego together.

 

After some stuggling with spacing we finally found just the right place to mount the brain. (This robot becomes more and more human like everyday.)  With the place set we begin mounting the brain on and use the Tetrix to Lego parts to hold it on. Using more metal then plastic.

Reflections For This Meeting: 

Wiring is a job that must be done, that doesn't mean I have to enjoy doing it.

 

With the robot done we now need to do the long and gruesome part of wiring. We decided to stack the motor controllers in a rather clever way under the robot. Almost in the robots belly.

Reflections For This Meeting: 

Chris decided that a free baseball game is a better deal than a pre-season meeting... OK, he can have that one.  We now have a pretty cool base that can now shrink/grow on command.  We are going to have a very busy season for the next few months.
