Hacking A Car

Katie is working on her "Robotics" badge for scouts.

One of the requirements involves a  toy car that will follow any line that you draw with a black marker.

We had to take the car apart and "hack" it so that it would follow a light instead of a line.

Fortunately, I have a friend who is good at this sort of thing.  I have no ability in this area!

As an added bonus, our friend was baby sitting a standard poodle on the day we decided to hack the car.

I could hardly keep my hands out of that dog's poofy head of hair!  
It was AWESOME and just made me happy to plunge my hands in there and rub.

The kids did all manage to get the car hacked properly.  It ran in fits and starts when trying to follow the light, but it DID work.  So Katie got that requirement checked off for her badge.

And I got poofy therapy.

So it was a win/win day!
