Michigan Prototype 2

This prototype was developed in the winter of 2014 by the University of Michigan ME450 class. They integrated a small vacuum into the machine, used a short and direct page channel with a 60-degree apex angle, and experimented with capacitive and infrared page sensors.

Designed by: Garrett Cullen, Kelsey Lindberg, Lauren Staszel, Teresa Tombelli
