For our final project owen and i made a smart boat. The materials that we used were a hummingbird duo circuit board, a servo motor, dc motors, and batteries. The tools that i use were a 3d printer, a computor, and a screwdriver. I had a lot of fun with this project. I still isnt working but it was still challenging. I hope i can do it again.
This was our third project and it was robotics. They idea behind the project was to program a hummingbird circuit to do something. My partner and i decided to make a helicopter that responds to a motion sensor.
Wood, wire, hummingbird circuit board, distance sensor, helicopter, computer, glue
Screwdriver, Glue gun, Wire strippers
The hardest thing was putting it all together because there were so many wires.
If i could do it again i would build a better base and i would also finish it.
Idea: My Automata prodject is a drone that spins up and down.
Materials: Cardboard, hot glue, foam cams, foam marshmallows, stick and an iPhone box.
Some of the tools I used were cardboard scissors, a hot glue gun and a hole puncher.
The thing that was most challenging for me was punching a hole in the iPhone box. I had trouble with this because I was not strong enough to do it myself. The thing I enjoyed most was seeing the final prodject in action. It was so cool to see all of the components working together in such harmony. If I could change one thing it would be to do it in wood. That way it would run much smoother.
My electrics prodject is a fair ride called, The Guillotine. The materials I used were, batteries, a switch, wires, stone blocks, glue, clear plastic, CD's cardboard, and a marker. The tools I used were a soldering iron, glue gun, scissors, and wire strippers/cutters. The most challenging part for me was deciding what to do because i kept changing my mind. I fixed it by just building whatever that came to mind. I liked soldering the best because it was fun. If I could change it I would put in lights.
Here are some pictures.
