Overall idea as of the end of Week 1

The lift will be 8020; we’re still working on the actual mechanics of it. Each side is made of three pieces of 48″ 10-series T-slotted 8020. When collapsed (as shown), the top of the manipulator will be feeder-station-high. When fully extended, we ought to be able to reach the highest peg if we execute the design correctly.
The manipulator will be able to pivot down for two reasons – to reach the lowest scoring pegs, and to fit within the frame perimeter.
The back of the robot will be counterweighed by the battery, electronics, minibot and deployer.
We’re looking at possibilities to make a floor-loading device as well that will pick up pieces off the floor and place them on our “hook.”
