Boardbot

For Principles of Engineering, a team of Olin students built a dry-erase board interaction system. What's that exactly? In a nutshell, the students designed a system involving a dry erase marker attached to a motor, a pulley system, a timing belt, some nuts and bolts and several weeks working on the code and by demo day they had their version of a working "Boardbot."
