Wow, it’s been an exciting first week!   We’re just 6 days in and the TROBOT 4.0 project is 40% to our goal!  I’m looking forward to designing the new structure and converting the project to run on the open mbed platform.  If anyone has any suggestions, questions, or comments, feel free to ask -- All feedback will be taken into account when we start the design effort.  

Also, thanks to all who contribute to the TROBOT 4.0 effort, without your support this project will not be possible.
