Engineering Students Build Clever Shoe Tying Robot

Shoelace Tying robot

University of California Davis students Andrew Choi, Gabriela Gomes, Jacklyn Tran, Stephanie Thai and Joel Humes were challenged to make something with just a shoestring budget of $600 and two motors. Putting their mechanical minds together, this engineering group came up with a clever robot with the singular purpose of tying shoelaces, bunny ear-style.
