Bonaparte - The Robot
Bonaparte was our first robot. Our inspiration initially came from a forklift. Because of our limited budget and our adept abilities with woodworking, the robot began construction almost entirely of reclaimed wood. However, challenges related to the robot's durability and aesthetic qualities became a problem. As a result we decided to transition to aluminum.
Midway through the process of converting the wooden frame of the robot to an aluminum one, we noticed that the robot resembled a guillotine. Because of this we decided to keep it the way it was, and named it Bonaparte.
