This project is to design and implement a machine which will automatically paint or draw on eggs.
Jim is organizing people to help with the project.
- This project will need eggs! Lots of eggs! ...eventually.
We will be holding a brainstorming session before the meeting next Tuesday (August 25, 2009). If you want to participate, show up no later than 7:00 pm.
