At the core of our project is the basic pop-up robot. This robot was designed to minimize cost and construction time, while maximizing flexibility. Last semester we did a study of pop-up mechanics. We used this knowledge as groundwork for the folding cardboard body of this robot design. Because of the low cost per robot we were able to make hundreds of iterations over the course of the project. This iterative process gave us a chance to fine tune the shape, physics, materials, electronics, fabrication, and programming.

Throughout the project we were able to show off our robots at Maker Faire and Ideate open house. These events offered a chance to get feedback from new audiences and learn how our robots effected them.
