Timelapse Recordings of Building Sessions

It is not the same building at home by ourselves without our teammates by our side, but we are trying to make the best out of this virtual experience. We recorded time-lapses of some of our builds so far. We discuss robot and attachment design ideas during our weekly zooms.
