Step 1 : Construction

  Connect the battery to the wireless receiver (for the Engine and the LED parts), then u just have to connect the wireless receiver to the engine and led. The engine and the LED are the easiest mechanics of the night light. For the remote controller it’s a bit harder ; After have been connect the battery to the Fork with 3 output : Connect the buttons to the output 1 & 3 and put them an Arduino. Then add the wireless transmitter to the Arduino to send the orders to the two receiver. 

Step 2 : Design

  3 parts : A Kirby in papercraft, a remote controller in carton, and finally a little box in plastic under the night light. 

Step 3 : How to use it

  There is 2 buttons on the remote controller, the first one is used to turn on the engine, and the second one will dim the light of the « ZenBabe », and let us make the rest.
