Truck Crane

How can you use a servo to pick things up? We've created this simple little crane that can pick up all sorts of different objects. What would you use it to pick up? 

How To Make It


Begin by building your circuit: power + slide dimmer + servo


Attach the popsicle stick to the servo with a rubber band


Rubber band the paper clip to the other end, bend the paper clip to make a hook. What besides a paper clip would work to pick things up? (Tip: try tape or a fork!)


Use the slide dimmer to control the crane arm
