Greetings, My submission for the 2009 Vex Robotics Product Design Challenge was the "Vex Gallon Bot." The goal of this robot was to lift a full gallon of water/milk/etc. and pour it into a cup without any physical human input.


Here is a list of the necessary parts needed to build the Vex Gallon Bot and a detailed description of the Vex Gallon Bot.

great job. How many gallons of water did you spill on your electronics before you went to sand ?

SCIOLY: Once again, it seems like you did not read the description in the attached doc.... how bout you do that first before you do anything else.... OkIsOrinKim: and as for the claw design, i assure u it will hold a full gallon of water, rebuild it identically if you don't believe me and find out for yourself... note: its not sand Valve: the fact that it could spill water over itself is mentioned... please read folks
