Round 2

Here is the latest functioning prototype, I have a pair working, and am in the process of refining them. They are responding really well, but can use a few tweaks. One thing that's a problem is that the cable jumps out of the track, which prevents it from being pushed out or pulled in. The cable has become fatigued from repeatedly jumping the track while the wheel continues to revolve, resulting in a kink in the cable. This kink causes the problem to occur more often. The other modifications I want to make will allow me to assemble the modules more easily, and to remove the wheel from the bottom.
