The Motivation

Texas A&M University Logo

Our main motivation behind SlashBot is to complete the requirements for our Electrical & Computer Engineering B.S. degrees at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. The capstone course is ECEN 405: Electrical Engineering Design Laboratory.

The objectives of the class are:

Conceive and bring to fruition a nontrivial engineering project

Learn about and apply a disciplined engineering methodology covering: project specification, design, verification, documentation, and integration

Develop one’s professionalism

All four of us (Dave Buckner, Mitchell Jefferis, Vinny LaPenna, and Michael Voth) love music and video games. The Guitar Hero series encapsulates both of these passions. We felt that proposing an idea we would enjoy executing would help us produce a higher quality project.
