Gripper Testing By Paul and Justin

Task: Test block gripper

Here is us testing the gripper we designed to pick up the blocks in this years SkyStone challenge. It was mostly effective in picking up the blocks, however we need more structural rigidity to ensure that the blocks dont rotate while being picked up.

Next steps include reinforcing the gripper frame, and mounting it to our prototyping robot. We also need to cut off the excess rev rail, to reduce weight and make it a little less bulky.
