Day 28: The hard life of prototypes

We were testing how narrow our max opening could be for the intake arms and during the testing the intake decided instead of slipping against the cube it would rather cleanly snap two pieces of the cheap plywood we use for prototyping. 

We have new plates being made tonight that are designed with smaller pneumatic cylinders and a shorter mounting system for the motors.

“Тhe gentle overcomes the rigid.
The slow overcomes the fast.
The weak overcomes the strong."

"Everyone knows that the yielding overcomes the stiff,
and the soft overcomes the hard.
Yet no one applies this knowledge.”
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
