Critter In A Box - Useless Machine

Critter In A Box - Useless Machine

Summary Here is my ?Critter in a Box? project. It is an Arduino powered Useless Machine. The box is made of wood. The servo arms, component brackets, critter eyes, special hardware, and decorative parts are 3D printed in PLA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcM-q2Ju1I0 Instructions The critter has two fingers, one for the door and one for the switch, and two glowing red eyes. The box is decorated to give it a strong box look. The printed decorative parts were sprayed in a hammered iron paint. All interior components are in natural black PLA. The custom Arduino shield is also 3D printed. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:793833. The side door hinged to open for access to the components inside. The support in the center is removable to make it easier working inside the box. The door is held closed by a magnet. The as-built123D Design file is included. My Arduino sketch file can be found here: https://app.box.com/s/oye4kocij328hbq5gva89wrq6wyn9sld
