We got the arm to work with them help of Yoni. I brought the straws but forgot the tape so we have to construct the tetrahedron another day. But for now we are just going to play around with it and get used to the movement.

We are starting the process of programming the claw to function properly. We need to bring 18 straws to help construct the tetrahedron. We've compiled the files to start the robot movement manually, but we don't know how to move the arm. we are out of time so we will figure out next week.

Today Brandon and I have finally gotten the basics of programming down. We are programming our robot to do a full circle around two chairs. One problem we keep running in to is that one of the bearings on our robot keeps falling off. Hopefully by the end of the week we can figure it out

Today was a great week, we finally got our robot up and running. There was a slight problem within the programming that hindered our progress, but with the help of another group we got it moving. Our next task is to get it moving around chairs in a figure 8 motion.
