Hugo Harvey & Jake Honeywill: Physical Computing Week 4

Having decided on a final idea, we will now be developing and refining the kinetic design and making our prototype. The design relies on a servo motor rotating from one set position to another in reaction to light as a sensory input.

Rigid wires will be freely attached to the servo gear, with the other end in a fixed position attached to the ‘flower’. When the gear rotates from position 1 to position 2, the parts of the flower will be pushed outwards about a pivot at their base.

Our next step will be to make the physical components of the design, and write the code for the angle change in the motor as a response to a light sensor.
