by Mya Berkey

Published on August 2, 2016

Invent a new way to let your dog out of its cage. Use the Rule Your Room Kit to make a conductive contraption that automatically opens your dog cage when you get home.

How To Make It

STEP 1 :

10570d97 f18a 426c b599 16585e5227b3

Power, Makey Makey, Servo. I also used the servo mount.

STEP 2 :

The second step was to build a conductible strip to attach to the door. I used tin foil, alligator clips, and wire.

STEP 3 :

The third step was to complete the Makey Makey circuit. I attached tin foil to the door stopper so when the door was opened it would release the dog.

STEP 4 :

The fourth and final step was to make the servo take the nail out of the crate. I used a twist tie to attach the nail to the servo and some tape and the servo mount to keep the servo in place.
