Mechatronic Face Main Ingredients:
- Arduino Uno
- Makey Makey board
- IR Receiver Module, Wireless Remote Control Kit for Arduino
- Wii Nunchuck
- Servo Control
- Arduino Sensor Shield 5
- The usual electronic stuff: wires, leds, protoboard…
- screws and a screwdriver
Let’s get down to work!
|Connect the Leds:|
|And finally, build the face and screw the different parts.|
All the coding, connections and 3-D plans are located in here.
