Ex-NASA Engineer Made the Perfect Rock Skipping Robot

  Ex-NASA Engineer Made the Perfect Rock Skipping Robot His little robot can make over 60 skips, and teach you how to skip rocks better, too.How do you achieve the perfect rock skip? The team narrowed it down to four variables: the wrist angle of the robot (the angle of the rock relative to the water), the arm angle of the robot (which changes the path of the rock), and the rocks used (variations in diameter and thickness). To create uniform controls for robot tests, Rober and his team made their own rocks out of unfired clay (the clay discs easily dried in the sun, and dissolved in water under 30 mins).
