If Animals Have Rights, Should Robots? – The New Yorker It is a very interesting read if you get the chance. It talks about eithics and if robots should have “rights”.
For our “Robot Magician”, we made a robot that can perform card tricks Mechanically, our robot is relatively simple, it uses 2 motors and a ball bearing to move and turn. We built a card dealer out of the EV3 motor and various pieces which, in ideal conditions, allow us to deal out […]

Lucy Pavlovich, Kevin Destin Sonar Sensor Testing When we were thinking about how to tackle this project, Lucy brought up the point of how the fact that the sonar sensor is made up of a receiver and an emitter could cause an imprecision in the value measured by the sensor. Essentially, the […]
Hi, I’m Lucy, and I’m from the state of Lon Gisland (its not part of New York, it’s its own state). I am debating between majoring in mechanical engineering and computer engineering (or both), because I want to continue my education and go to grad school and do robotics research. I am super excited for […]
For our robotic bat project, we decided to make a robotic bat. On the mechanics side, we decided to build our robot around the EV3 brick. Our robot uses 3 motors total, 2 for the wheels and a 3rd to allow the head to articulate side to side. Jutting out on either side of our […]
