    Time to form a team. You have just entered the realm of the "super project."
    A super project is, in part, characterized by requiring technologies that you currently don't have under your control (i.e. drive train, motor controls, avoidance sensors, control systems, servo mechanism algorithms, and a guidance system).

    Just like any product is one screw away from not being able to ship, any project is one technology away from not being realizable.
