Time of post: 12:21 AM
Hey everyone. Today (well technically yesterday according to the date), was my brother's birthday so happy birthday to him. He's 13 now.

Today was actually really fun. Our first lab of the day consisted of us learning and then using some 3D object creation software. My partner and I made a rook (you know, the chess piece) as well as learned how to use the program and finished the tutorials in an hour and a half. The rook actually came out looking really good too ^_^

Since we had an hour and a half of extra time, we also started work on making an old style cannon. We got really far but ran out of time. We're gong to try to finish it at some point in the next week.

To make it even better though, it's not just a 3D image that we see. Once it's done, the professor took the saved files and they're actually going to be made with a prototyping machine so that should be cool. It takes about 12 hours per figure to make though.

In the second lab, we used Lego Mindstorms to create a robot that would follow a path on the floor. This was the introduction to our week long design project. This was pretty fun too but not as cool as the 3D object thing. I'll try to get screen shots of our creations at some point.

Later on at night, I went down to the campus bowling alley (remember, I'm at Stevens Institute) for a couple games. So over all, this entire day was fun ^_^

Anyway, that's about all for today. Thanks for reading, sorry I couldn't visit, and have a great day!
