Today we cut to size and sanded the aluminum strips which go outside the box. We also attempted to assemble the pogo pins in the magnet connectors, but they were too small and they didn’t have enough spring distance. We knew this might be a problem, but we didn’t have time to get better ones, as they would have to come from China. For this reason, we decided to use the modules each with their own individuals USB cables, until we finish our alternate design of the pogo connectors.  We also finished assembly of the dial module.
