The prototype is assembled and functional!
So many improvements need to be made: it needs to be flatter, more responsive, more durable. But I’m very happy with how it turned out.
My original design brief: I have a desire to make a motorized “car” that can be as flat as possible. I want it to slide under a door, flip open, and drive away. I have a very cinematic vision in mind, I see a spy, or cat burglar, or techno supervillain using it. Not that I want it to be used for nefarious purposes, it’s just something stuck in my head, so I’m going to make it.
