The X(box) Factor
In case you were wondering, we did not have a robot party during the school day today. Mostly we sat around and tried to come up with funny jokes for each other. The time flew by pretty quickly! Before I knew it, all of my friends were pouring into the basement, ready to play with me!
First, the girls who were interested in being on the drive team met up so they could understand what is expected. I was so thrilled to see that so many girls wanted to drive me at competitions! There will be an A team and a B team. Both teams will be rotated in and out at competitions. The good thing about having two teams is that if someone is feeling sick or is having a bad day, a replacement is ready to go. The girls had to know that driving me is a huge commitment - lots of practice time and mandatory attendance of all competitions.
Today, the programmers did more work on the code that Brother and I will share (for the most part). A milestone today was that they figured out how to program an Xbox controller! Brother has been having a lot of fun driving around, and now he has two different ways to drive!
Brother had another issue today. The drivers noticed that he was making a weird clicking noise when he drove. Apparently, he had a missing piece in his gearbox that needed to be replaced. It was tricky to get back in there, but the builders did a great job figuring it out!
More work was done on my hanger today. Now, the two tape measures are attached and will unwind and wind up on the same spool. It looks like more designing needs to be done on my hook before it is ready because it is not lining up quite right.
One of my boulder slappers was mounted on my frame today. It still needs to be worked on a lot but seeing it in motion on my frame will help my team to figure out what needs to be fixed.
It's late now and my team isn't here with me. I wish that they were here so they could read me a bedtime story. Maybe I'll just read the game manual!
