Homework:

Option One: Continue your research into a material, sensor, or technique of your choice. Make a post to the blog about your results including a video or still image. Bring your experiments on Monday to share with the class.

Option Two: Work with a servo motor or vibration motor to create an interesting motion with fabric. Make a post to the blog about your results including a video or still image. Bring your experiments on Monday to share with the class.

Here is an example for using a servo motor: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Sweep

If you are using a servo with your flora, the red wire should go to VBATT, the brown wire to GND, and the yellow or orange wire to one of your analog output pins (pin 9 if you want to stick with the variables in the example code). The example code can also be found in the Examples files in the arduino software.

The example code sweeps the motor from 0 to 180 degrees and back again. Attach one of the arms to your motor, upload the code and see what motion you can create. Try changing the delay times to create a slower sweep, or sweep to different angles.

Servo motors have different ranges. Some range from 0 to 90 degrees, some from -90 to 90 degrees (for a total of 180 degrees), some from 0 to 180 degrees, and some go from 0 to 360. If you are trying to tell your motor to go to an angle it cannot accommodate, it will make a jerking motion and/or strange sound. You can look up the datasheet for your motor online to find out more about its properties.

Once you have your motor turning, try attaching fabric to your motor arms with thread in order to get some interesting motion effects. Feel free to get in touch if you have any problems or questions.
