I just made the worst MicroPython project ever! If you're tired of swiping people on Tinder or doing another single-click task, this is the project for you.

The arm is made of aluminum foil wrapped around a cardboard core. The arm hinge is some Kapton tape. Basically, a servo with a servo arm actuates the aluminum foil arm up and down. The aluminum foil arm is alligator clipped to some wire shelving. This seemed to make it more reliable. Enjoy :-)

Code: Select all

# main.py -- put your code here!

servo1 = pyb.Servo(1)

while True:
    servo1.angle(0)
    pyb.delay(1000)
    servo1.angle(90)
    pyb.delay(1000)
