Trouble Embedding Videos

Hello everyone,

Unboxing from the box...

I have found great deals at "...inthebox.com" and they are great at creating rings and loops to jump through if, somehow you are charged ALOT for a misconception...or not. After months, (MONTHS) of trying to get their attention, being told to go to this, select that, press this, click that- I still have not received refunds. Anyhow- will update this rant. Regarding unboxing; the LCD modules (4 of them) all were faulty. These will the nice white on blue that mount over the mega, no wiring.
hello world  it is my first post here,during a long time i would like to have a robot but when i was children it is not possible to have one now with a new … Read more

Two-Speed Gearbox Concept

I come from the FIRST Robotics Competition, and recently, I designed a gearbox that can shift between two different speeds. This is mounted "invertedly", meaning that the motor shaft points inward of the test chassis as opposed to outward. The piston has a special mount called the "DOG" gear, and that latches to either of the two gear combinations on the lower shaft, allowing that shaft to rotate with that combination's speed and torque.
