Today the hand got beefed up. The new linear actuator came in allowing the hand to become more powerful. The new more powerful arm is able to grip rocks. It can even pick up a tissue box. The team is also experimenting with a new idea of controlling the arm with a “mock arm”. The idea is that the mock arm will have potentiometers that will control the moments of the real arm by the potentiometer giving the arm’s servos positions. The programming team has controlled a servo by a potentiometer. A really helpful thing would be if a Prop C library was written to directly connect a Prop C board to a Verizon Jetpack ( Hint, Hint, Andy Lindsey).
We updated the back of our shirt with this colorful word mashup.
