1. To design for task-oriented problems.
2. To learn to address complex task situations through making (modeling, testing, refining).
3. To develop skills in fabricating working prototypes.
4. To understand design tradeoffs between function/form/material/fabrication.

design objectives

delicate kinematics, partnership with Kevin Shin


the parameters

the mission

- pick up 3 eggs off the ground

- transport it several feet and deposit them into a glass bowl

- all while sitting in a wheel chair with limited mobility
