Blog Post (Day 6)- Shooter Prototype

After lunch, we started testing the shooting prototypes. We tested out a number of wheels using a prototype shooter.

1280x768

Some of the most promising wheels out of the ones we tested were the 6 in. pneumatic wheel which was very accurate and powerful, with high arcs. We also tested a wheel with Green Grippy Tread (Yea… that’s what it’s called…). While it was less powerful but was still very accurate. Below are some videos of our testing process. The top video has the 6 in. pneumatic and the bottom has the Green Grippy Tread.
