תהיה מציאותי. תחלום.
Be realistic. Dream.

Why we think we should win:
We deserve to win the contest because we work really hard on it.
we have invested most of our time in the past month to building and thinking about the original levels that you can see in our machine.
We feel that our group became really close.
Even if we won't win, the feeling when we actually got the machine to work was worth it, and we'll always remember it!

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
to fill a glass of water.
