The plan for completing the project is as follows:
Finalize List of Electronic Components and order them. (Accomplished)
Visit home depot to find hardware for contraptions body
Investigate possible code for programming device.
Electronic parts should arrive.
Begin testing with code.
Assemble frame and connect to arduino. Take video of this for benchfly.
Run tests so I have time to tinker if it fails to work as desired. Work on instructible entry.
Refine device if needed and take data for figshare.
Refine the code and make adjustments to the physical aspects of the device. Also, I hope to improve the aesthetics of the device.
