Our team came up with a simple solution to a missing type of VEX piece. We wanted to make a powered linear motion that wasn't as slow as and bulky as the pneumatics system. We created a simple yoke like gear attachment that would be used to convert the rotary motion of the gears to linear piston-like motion.
