October 11 – Blinking Eye

For this project, I made an eye that “blinks” when a light is shown in it’s pupil. It uses just a light sensor(the pupil) and a servo motor(the eyelashes). The problems I found with this project were making the eyelash flexible enough to work with one motor. The foam I used was terrible, so I had to make a slip for the motor arm to be put into and a push pin to allow it to flexibly move. I also somehow misread that we were supposed to use DC motors and not servo motors, so I used a servo instead. 

 

Here is the link to a video of my project.
