Arduino

 This project held a lot of new challenges for me and really tested me with tools and equipment I had not experimented with before. After a meeting with Phil it was decided that adding a simple arduino rig to my work could be a really nice touch and add that extra little something to my work. I made a simple command on arduino that would command a servo to rotate back and worth through 60 degrees, just enough to shine onto the length of my mirrored strip I had constructed.

 I needed a motherboard, a power supply and a USB link to my laptop in order for the arduino to work, I first drew a diagram of the elements i needed and how to wire them and then I proceeded to make and test the circuit.

Finished circuit which I then mounted onto my television stand:

In order to see the beams better I made use of Dan’s smoke machine.Image
