How does this thing work anyway, what’s the big picture?
How was it supposed to work theoretically?
That’s nice. What’s cool about it?
So what does the thing look like?
But did it work?
We flew through our first two design revisions lifting the weight great heights, but we were neglecting some of the rules. Our machine and its high lift potential were flattened with the necessity of a recyclable lift. We were able to lift the weight and bring it down all according to the rules, but we could not accomplish this twice without manually resetting our machine. This caveat proved deadly in the third design review. In order to abide by that particular rule, an entirely new system needed to be developed. That system fell short, and our innovations were Steifled. Given one more round, and some more creativity, the use of the four-bar linkage would have proved to be a winning design choice.
