Post Bag Day #3- 2/23/15 – Small and Mighty

Lab opening time: 2:00 pm

Today was a small work day.  Most of the team took the day off because there was no real assigned work to be done. The people that did show up, however, got lots of good work done.

The media team worked hard on getting the reveal video done and finalized. Lauren worked on cleaning up the Photoshop on the finalized robot photo. The business team cut the vinyl for the name plates and worked on organizing the teams contact information.

The prototyping team worked on a light-weight mechanism that would help to keep the totes from falling over when moving a six stack around. Devon also worked on the wiring of the new 2015 battery.
