During our short 50 minute class period. We were divided into 3 different groups. Then we were asked to build backpacks.

As the robot I felt like I had less control than usual, But I did not feel helpless because there was no real thing stopping me from doing what I wanted to do. There were times where I just sat there doing nothing because my team did not have the appropriate commands. This got me thinking about how many commands are necessary for a robot to successfully complete any given task.
