Our team’s goal for this project was to create a device that can quickly remove the husks of the macadamias without breaking the nut inside, which will ensure that Guatemalan farmers will not lose any of their harvest. By improving the efficiency of this process, the farmers can maximize their profit, which will help to improve their quality of life.
