Steamworks 2017 FRC touchpad mockup using vex parts.   

Nice to have a lot of vex parts around to use in FRC field element or robot element mock ups.   This is a testing mockup of the touchpad which activates a light if any of the three posts holding the bottom plate are deflected at least 1/2 inch.    The vex green rubber links provide the flexibility for any aluminum beam to be pushed without jamming in the holes of the top plate.
