We are currently awaiting the fabrication of our designs, which are due in November 2001. More information regarding the performance of our device will be reported shortly thereafter. The following is a list of research topics that we believe will enhance the current state of our design:

- develop smaller hub and hook
- look into torsional springs
- aim for shorter actuation trajectory
- eliminate the need for stepper motors
- simplify design
- lower energy consumption
