Backlog: Machine gun experiment

Aim: high speed firing

How?: gearing

Details: the aim of this gun was fast firing. It looks good but it was extremely unreliable. The gearing made the gun less powerful hindering it’s ability to push zamour spheres out of the launcher. The program worked a treat (I’ve lost it though). It counted how much ammo you had left (each press of the touch sensor [trigger] took away one) and beeped when you ran out.

Conclusion: Lessons learnt: gearing and speed is not always best. Don’t try and jump over a hurdle that is too big; do your own standards first and build up.
