> HanoiSolver picks up Lego 'discs' and moves them between three
> different 'posts' to solve the Towers of Hanoi puzzle. The program
> is capable of solving for any number of discs between 1 and 5. The
> bot has a pneumatically powered claw which travels vertically on a
> forklift-type boom to grab the 'discs' and pick them up.
> In the classic puzzle, the posts are located in a line, but in my
> version they are located in a semi-circle: the entire grabber
> assembly rotates on a large Technic turntable to transfer the discs
> from one post to another. The picture below shows the main grabber
> assembly, the 'discs', and the 'posts'.
