Cooler-Scooter and Candybot

Posted by Nathan Block On June 27, 2017 Comments Off

Last Saturday we participated in the Granite City Days Parade, our second parade so far this summer. One of our mentors rode a motorized cooler-scooter alongside us, and it was as big of a hit as Candybot! 

The new, larger, battery on the robot has proven a major benefit since we no longer have to switch out in the middle of the parade, which has let us reduce our trailer size. We've also made some tweaks to the conveyor system in order to make it run more smoothly. A new pulley was designed to keep the belt centered, and some bristles were added to control candy flow rate. 

Our next parade is the St. Joe 4th of July parade in St. Joe. The parade starts at 10:00 AM at 3rd Avenue Southwest, down Minnesota Street and ends at 17th Avenue East. Come see us there!
