Project for the year ended up being Caffeine the linux powered online student id accepting talking soda machine. Additionally lots of stuff was put together/purchased for a robot but it was decided it would not be deliverng soda due to lack of time/interest in the project post EOH. Instead the mostly working robot will hopefully serve as a generic platform for future Sigbot robot projects. Sigbot invests lots of money into tools, laptop, and robot parts.
