Time Ticking, Towels, and Terrycloth

Our prototype is almost complete! We have ironed out all the final details and are just working on the assembly. We have also continued research on fabric material for the cover, and called a few local craft stores to see what the have in stock. We are exploring the use of terrycloth (used for bathrobes/towels) as opposed to cotton since it is usually made for absorption, so it would be ideal to keep the arm area dry from things like sweat or water. By staying after school again to work, we have been able to have some real progress on our project. All our group members' schedules are finally lining up, so we plan to be putting more time in outside of class together. As we begin the second half of our school year, it is now more important than ever for us to understand the importance of time. From here on out, we know that a lot of hard work must be put in so that by the time we present the PivoRest, we will have something to show off and be proud of
