It's me, Lumos! Did you miss me? Last time I wrote a blog, I didn't even have a name. So much has changed! I would say that being alone in that bag felt like forever, but I actually just slept the whole time so it flew by.
Anyway, the reason I'm back and writing on the blog is because my team used their allotted 6 hours of unbagging time today! I was a little confused when they first opened it up, but I was so realized what they were doing! They didn't let a single minute go to waste. First, the programmers worked with me. They booted me up and tested out my code. A few things were acting up a bit, but they figured it out and got me going. The great part about having both me and Nox is that while the programmers were working with me, the builders could work with Nox and vice versa. One of the first things the builders did was they made a cage for me out of pipe. It was a set of two bars that will go on my frame to protect me. If I need to go over a defense, they will shield my mechanisms. If I accidentally fall over for some reason, they will keep me safe. A lot of autonomous code was tested out today. A few more wires were set up on both of us. My hanging mechanism was even swapped out for a better version. My team knows that it is not quite perfect yet, but they are excited to work on it and get it ready.
Wow! Those six hours flew by. I'm back in the bag now, but not for long this time. Friday afternoon, I can come out again! That time, I will be competing! It's finally the thing I've been practicing for all along! I can't wait! Until then, Nox will keep you all updated.
