Hopper Mechanism Prototype

Hey everyone
We worked on the hopper prototype in the meeting today and successfully prooved the concepts in it's design

We took a treadmill and used that for the veritcal belt, and used an old roller powered by a drill for the second roller (used to pick balls up off the ground)

Here are some videos of it in action!

- it can roll balls in from the ground

- it can spit balls back out the bottom onto the floor (and into the human player station)

- and it can load balls into the loading area for the shooting mechanism

We're having another meeting tomorrow after school where we will further test these concepts and apply them to the design
