Time for a history lesson, as well as an interesting mechanical video.

This feels like an old-school documentary your teacher might have put on to keep you all quiet. However, this is just as interesting if you are 14 or 41, with a look at every aspect of making the Vesper from the engines to the original chassis. It's amazing just how few robots are really involved, its practically handmade, with the mechanical helpers mostly limited to conveyor belts while professionals attach the suspension, engine and radiators. A clever and informative little video, this is worth waiting five minutes of your lunch break on!
