After the robot has been bagged and tagged,  teams around the world have six total hours to  work on the robot outside the bag. In this  short time we managed to add a climber, a  power cube hook for the start of the game, and added to Emmet’s imagery. Click here to see the full update on Google Docs.

It’s the final week before bag and tag day! This week we worked on some of the build aspects of the robot’s imagery by adding the “legs” of Emmet, which hold the finished wiring of the pneumatics to the electropneumatic-aquarium. We were also able finish the second stage of the elevator using a telescoping 80-20 shaft and a pulley system, which together allow the robot to extend much higher. Click here to see the full update
