We're having a productive evening! Vasu Agrawal is being a pro at building our circuit for the board. Reid Long wrote our server for the game and is working on the display. I am starting work on the Android client.

This time we're actually done with Day 3! Vasu and Reid have finished a herculean task - cutting 81 wires to length, stripping them all, and using them to wire all 81 buttons in our board. On the software side, I've been making steady progress with the Android app (fixing bugs from yesterday and improving the UI and connection to the server). Vasu did some work on the AR overlay, and Reid made our server more robust.
