Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"Bobblehead if you're with me."

Why we think we should win:
Our machine features a unique, brand-new story dreamt up by some of our teammates. We really wanted to get away from cliché pop culture references such as Mary Poppins, Kingsmen, etc. and create an original idea from scratch. Another thing that most machines probably won't utilize is pneumatic power in the form of an automatic door actuator. With hand-made aesthetics unique to each city as the icing on the cake, "A Love Story" is sure to blow away the competition.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Turns a doorhandle
