Proj 3: Astronaut Tools

The goal of this assignment is to simulate the tools used by astronauts during extravehicular activity (aka EVA, aka spacewalk). You will first build a tool that could help an astronaut to accomplish a common task on the International Space Station: moving nuts between bolts or routing wire. Then, you will demonstrate the use of your tool in-class in simulated spacewalk conditions.
