Starting to prototype new ideas!
Hello dear Backers,
Sorry for the slight delay, we've been so busy building stuff, it is getting overly exciting!
After a first week of installing the space, a week of brainstorming, a week of smaller prototype, we are now in the process of building small scale prototypes to test different mechanisms and actuation systems.
A lot of small scale experiments. Trying to see if it is possible to make a self-righting trimaran.
Really interesting potential actuation mechanisms below.
You can follow the parallel Progress of all these different versions of Protei under our versionning system :
Protei_005.1 "Alien" : Inflatable and articulated
Protei_005.3 "Surface Control"
Protei_005.5 "Articulated +"
Stay tuned, because in the coming days we should start putting stuff in the water :) !
This is a very exciting time, and this week, we would like to introduce to you our advisor for Oceanography, the fantastic Peter Keen, brought to you by Toni Nottebohm, our film maker .
