July Robotics Class Weeks 2 and 3

A bunch of motors from my late night eBay hunts

3D printed parts held together with popsicle sticks and hot glue; worked very well.

Neater gearbox designed by the TA. Very nice design. Short print times.

Robots coming together.

We ended up spending more of our time focusing on programming, which was important to cover.

Soon I finally begin my journey home. I plan to hibernate and cuddle with my cat for at least a week. Below is said cat.
