So, is there a story behind the name Pinch Point??::safety::

It’s called pinch point because the robot has a powerful kicker that it can literally “blow” your hand off. That’s why we often have to remind our team to warn each other before we test it. If someone’s hand were to get caught, it would probably get fractured bones.
