Now, take a look at how the instructions are being used in this project. In your engineering notebooks, make the following predictions:

  • What’s happening when you run this project? What will the Clawbot be able to do?
  • What would happen if we didn’t use the while and wait instructions in the callback functions for each controller button event?
