How To Make It

STEP 1 : Gather Materials

We gathered all of the needed materials. This includes all of the littleBits pieces and power devices. We also needed cardboard, tape, scissors, yarn, and hot glue gun to make the mini door.

STEP 2 : Build the Door

Using everything but the littleBits pieces, build the door to be stable and mobile.

STEP 3 : Connect the Servo

Then, we connected the Servo using tape and a small amount of hot glue. We cut a hole into the top of the cardboard so the blades of the servo were directly next to the door. Next, we connected an unfolded paper clip through the servo blade and put that through a hole in the door. we had to play around with the angle of it so it would open and close properly.

STEP 4 : Connect Final Pieces
