MERRdur Tank

*Best Engineering Award*
by Richard Tang, Matt Brown, Rithwik Raghuram, Erik Costello.

The toy is a remote-controlled tank with directional controlled projectile firing capabilities. The idea originated from expanding on the RC car but including a fun shooting feature anyone would enjoy. The firing mechanism consists of a barrel, plunger with rack attached, spring for firing power, and a 2:1 gear ratio for a torque increase coming from a DC motor. Kids around the world constantly crave new remote-controlled products and this toy would allow for an easy interface that you can download on your phone.
