Assignment 6: (more motion)

Filed under: 6: More Motion,Assignments — mdgross @ 6:56 pm

Due Tuesday, February 19, 2008.

Complete (if necessary) and extend the previous (making motion) assignment. Make the motors, solenoids actually DO something. Make the motion more sophisticated, or make it more responsive to sensor inputs. Take the project further than a breadboard electronics exercise. See “cabaret mechanical theatre” or “flying pig” for some fun automata ideas (cams, levers, geneva wheels) that you can use to make a motor do something more than spin.
