I tried to design chassis to look like real Crane game machine of amusement arcade.
Step 2: Feature
My machine has five functions.
Step 3: Contorol System
Step 4: Game Procedure
Step 5: Circuit Diagram
Step 6: Make Music CONTROL BOARD
I bought inexpensive MP3 player to playback music from Arduino. And I adapted.
Step 7: Make COIN MECHANISMS
