Reflections For This Meeting: 

Our arm is going to be insanely hard to control

Stance works is going to be very helpful for moving the robot on the terrain

Colfax Max has a very spicy special burger

 Today we worked on cutting, painting and assembling the field.  We then worked on designing the basic parts of our robot and each on of the module piece that we are going to use.  The team talked about the controling of the arm and stanceworks and its importance on navigating over and around the terrain.

We worked on painting the field parts as well as cutting the parts for the mountain, the cliffs, and the bridges.

Starting to paint the tubes for doublers and putting tape on the scoring tubes.

Putting a final coat of paint of the supports for the mountain and placing the industrial non-slip tape.

Rough versions of the stanceworks, the arm, and the hand as well as a concept of the wrist.

More detailed drawnings of the arm.

More details of the hand and sensors attached to it.

The concept behind the stanceworks and the placements of the wheels.
