Introduction: Automatic Light Switch

I was bored of turning the light on myself, so I built this! It's made from the LEGO NXT Mindstorms. It works by attaching a two long pieces to a motor. You also must have it stable so I lifted it up and taped it down. Finally attach a cord from the motor to the Mindstorms main unit. By the way, I programed it to turn on and off when I push the button, and I also programed it listen for my voice and turn on and off. Sorry some of the pictures are side-ways or bad quality.

so its like a lego clapper! cool! you should post more details on how you built it though, even though its a really simple design

I can't really since I didn't take pictures of it when I was building it.

take it apart and take pictures as you go. then put them up in reverse and build it again. i do it all the time with knex, i don't know what you will do about the tape though...

well i don't really feel like doing that since it takes too long

If your going to post something u should tell people how to make it.

It doesn't take that long to take it apart. There isn't even that much pieces. It would also be very helpful to other people.

What are the materials

Wow. It would be cool if you get a sound sensor and just say lights off! and it would turn off.

i do not see any rhyme or reason to it
