Liam and Yeks’ Astronaut Tool


We were given the task of threading the wires through the loops and closing the loops, which was potentially a task for an astronaut in space. So what we decided to do was to make a handheld tool that could be used to complete this task in any orientation, and simply one-handed, regardless of which hand.

We attached one motor to the EV3 Brick and that could be activated when the touch sensor is pressed, where the touch sensor is located to the side of the brick. We made enclosing of the two wires just under the motor, and made a spool besides the motor that would hold the wire and unspool it if need be.
