Over the past couple of months I have not made much progress in the way of a physical product. Due to complications with the WiFi security at school, I am unable to connect a Raspberry Pi to the network. This means that when I want to install software or libraries, I have to plan time outside of class. That means I have had to focus my time on creating a plan of attack for the project. I have been creating a small collection of websites/forums that outline the commands and software I will need to download when on other WiFi networks. I will list three of the most valuable ones so far but as of yet had not had time to implement/try the software. 

Mounting a Disk

Create Startup Protocol

Inter-pi Communication

In the coming month, I hope to be able to show a rendered file through a test. I will quickly begin moving forward with some 3D Printing and Laser cutting to create a basic structure. 

Some products I didn't consider were power supplies and mounting hardware, but I have jerryrigged a battery pack and will move ahead with some tape for now.
