Gearing up for design phase

We are now ready to start implementing infrastructure.

This has been an exciting week. To many people's surprises, including my own, the arm moved on it's own. Furthermore we now have direct access to the motors and a plan in motion to built our own hardware & software around the stock CPCs( circular pin connectors) which drive and collect feedback from the arm. Unfortunately the stock controller doesn't seem to be functioning properly which doesn't change the long term plans or goal of this project( just makes it less convenient). Hopefully, we'll be able to get some labeled pictures and more documents up this weekend.

other news:

- datasheets for the motors are up. (UGRMEM04- & UGSMAM-22-DS31)
- a sketch has been done for the PWM amplifiers but no documents yet( maybe another week).
