oh dang. i just lost my post because my internet hung. here's a quick version of it.
main ramps = DONE!
secondary ramps = started! aluminum sheet surface cut to correct size and shape.
to do tomorrow (sounds like lots to easy stuff-but will take time!!! only a week left!!):
-draw grid on ramp material and mark points with the punch (borrowed from ideo. don't lose it)
-arm: determine desired length and angle of gripper
-signage--read the rules
-pvc flag holder
-joystick board--place to put joysticks, oi...
-think about hinges/dampers for ramps
-crate? kersten, are you in touch with mr. reichling? HOW IS THE ROBOT GETTING SECURED INSIDE?
-battery mount (orientation? placement?)
-cross bracing on tower of power
