So, my star wars obsessed seven year old and I bought our first arduino at Christmas. Its taken us a few weeks (and three generations of my family) to get it up and running, but we are finally making ground on our project.
I was trying to find a way to help him and his sister learn angles, and between us we came up with this:
- 1 x Adafruit pan/tilt from pimoroni,
- 0.3 x dead action man
- 1 x drinking straw
- 1 x green led
One he got the hang of pointing it where he wanted to using .write(angle), I re-coded it to see if I could get a sine wave feeding into a basic defensive pattern. Actually works quite well, I think.
