This instructable was created in fulfillment of the project requirement of the Makecourse at the University of South Florida (www.makecourse.com) My inspiration came from the putt putt game in the movie Happy Gilmore I used an Arduino Uno, a metal gear servo, IR remote, IR receiver, and plenty of 3D printed parts.

Step 1: Design

Designing the components on Autocad inventor, I needed to make renderings of all the parts that I needed to print so first was the design aspect. The parts are in an attachment for viewing

Step 2: Arduino Code

This was the most strenous step for me because I am new to the C++ world.

i used the irremote library and also the servo library



int RECV_PIN = 11; // the pin where you connect the output pin of TSOP4838

int led1 = 10;

int itsONled[] = {0,0,0,0};

/* the initial state of LEDs is OFF (zero)

the first zero must remain zero but you can

change the others to 1's if you want a certain

led to light when the board is powered */

#define button1 0xFFA25D // code received from button A

Servo myservo;

int pos = 0;

int increment = 1;

long lastServoMove = 0;

IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);

decode_results results;

void setup() {

Serial.begin(9600); // you can comment this line

irrecv.enableIRIn(); // Start the receiver

pinMode(led1, OUTPUT);



void loop() {

//if (button1pressed)

if (irrecv.decode(&results)) {

unsigned int value = results.value;

switch(value) {

case button1:

if (itsONled[1] == 1) {

digitalWrite(led1, LOW);

itsONled[1] = 0;


else {

digitalWrite(led1, HIGH);

itsONled[1] = 1;







if(itsONled[1] == 1)


if(millis() - lastServoMove > 15)



if(pos == 80)


increment = -1;


if(pos == 0)


increment = 1;


pos = pos + increment;

lastServoMove = millis();




Step 3: Putting It All Together

Final steps I put all the printed pieces together, painted the face, and inserted the LED's for the final touch.

<p>Awesome build.. but terrifying! I love it.</p>
<p>Wow! This looks great and sounds like a fun project. Can you tell me more about the electrical components that you used and how it was all rigged together?</p>
Sure basically the arduino was controlling the servo through pin 9 the leds through pin 10 and the infrared remote sensor through pin 11 you can wire this all directly to the components or use a breadboard I chose to solder it so I would have better connections
I want one!
