Building a Shape Arcade – Part 2


After experimenting with the smaller prototype (to my right in the picture above), I realized that I needed to make things bigger to get the range of motion I want from the final piece.

I followed the excellent tutorial by TobiasPi ( to quickly prototype a larger test bed with cardboard. This way I can quickly add lights and motors while I finalize my design specifications and changes to the design found in the tutorial.

As you can tell from the photo, I’m pretty excited about this!
