  1. Great job describing how your RG setup works as a group, Adam! Hopefully there's no domino or mouse trap issue when the whole class goes!

  2. The setup is looking good, nice to see you were able to work out the bugs you were having a few weeks ago. I am curios though what is the purpose of the dominoes that split off from the main path and double back to your motor?

    1. Per Dr. Kaya I needed to have a way to stop the motor, the dominoes provide enough resistance to stop the motor from spinning.

  4. Very clear explanation, good job! Glad to see that most problems you met before have been solved, and the circuit looks pretty good right now. Good luck on the class demo!

  5. Looks like you guys are ready for Wednesday. I noticed the dominos back-tracking to your motor, that just to turn the motor off, right? If it is, how does that work? How do those dominos end up turning that motor off? –Andrew

    1. The dominoes provide enough resistance to prevent the motor from turning, it doesn't exactly turn it off, but there is no more movement.

  7. Nice job guys, the set up looks good. Haowens circuit and setup looks like that might have taken a decent amount of time with setting up all the various parts.
