I #bitified the walkways to simulate the real one by pressing on a toggle button the bridge opens/closes accordingly.
The movement of the two walkways are by using two Arduinos, controlling correspondent Stepper motors. The stepper motors rotate a Lego beam attached to the base of each sidewalk.
I had to design a custom 3D printed adapters for attaching the motors to the base of Tower Bridge.
I did it this way because I didn't want to change any part of the original Lego product.
I really liked participating in this contest, since It got the opportunity of combining, the History of a well known World's iconic symbol with Technology.
