New project; review of first week

How we began
-considered our materials, primarily solar cells
-considered biomimetic options including eyes and window plants
How we proceeded
- considered problems currently faced by humanity
-settled on solar power approaches
-conceived of a solar tracking sensing surface based on an eye (pinhole with an array of photoresistors behind it which could indicate misalignment of the hole with the light source
-conceived of a solar concentrating lense, large scale which could be place on a building
What we settled on for thursday
- several team members create a solar tracking device
-the rest do the math of the glass domes and flesh out the concept
What Happened
- solar tracker sucked

What we are doing now
building a solar tracker based on an eye
