This is our final product, finished and polished. On Wednesday, the 31st of May, we presented our final product to a group of peers, whom graded it for it's quality and usability. Over the week, before the presentation (The Day of Our Inevitable Reckoning) we:

- Created a posterboard, both started it and finished it in 2 days. 

- Our posterboard included: Cost, Descriptions, it's ideal running, and multiple pictures. We made it using sharpie, rulers, and pencil outlining.

During the presentation (The Day of Our Inevitable Reckoning), we:

- All three, stood in front of our poster for 1 hour, presenting the general layout, covering all elements of our poster to anyone who walked by (science fair style). 

- Explained what we don't have done yet: Finished the python code, trained the AI. This process would take months, and since we had about 1 month to do this project, we could only get so much done. Though, we made a very efficient prototype, and a decently running robot.
