A wonderful moving and lighting bauble in my christmas tree ! Thank you Littlebits !
Using your TV remote will make the bauble alive !
Duration: 3 hrs.
How To Make It
: Making the bauble
Using a clear plastic ball with a diameter of 100 mm makes it very easy to mount the IR trigger, the bargraph and the servo inside.
Connect a wire to the IR trigger and let one side partly stick out of the plastic ball.
: Prepare the servo
Use a small servo arm and mount 3 M6 bolts on this arm.
This will make the bauble shake when the servo is activated.
: The power supply
The power supply
Connect a power bit to the wire bit and secure it with a shoe.
I used a backup-battery, normally used for smartphones to supply the power. This battery has a capacity of 1800 mAh and lasts longer than a normal battery.
Glue some golden stars and little plastic rhinestones on the outside, put the bauble in your christmas tree and enjoy !
Every time you use your TV remote the bauble becomes alive !
