We have lift off!

After a little over 6 weeks we have completed our 14th robot. You can watch the six weeks in 4 minutes in the video below. In the video you can watch as we go from design, to prototype, to chassis, to claw, to arm, and if you pay enough attention you will even see the alien holding the panel.
Timelapse video of the 2019 being built.
The robot is nearly identical from the front and the back. It is able to pick up and drop off objects on both sides. The balls are picked up from the roller claw.
Hatch Panels are picked up from the alien which is hidden inside the arm holding the claw. The picture below shows the panel of the arm removed so you can see the alien in all of its intricacies.
The next image shows what the alien looks like when looking down the end of the arm.
The alien pops out of the end of the arm in under a second and grabs the hatch panel from the center. An alien hasn't scared audiences like this since 1979. You will have to wait until competition to see it in action.
