Picture of How to Make 'Despicable Me' Bomb Beds
IDEA: 

The idea was initiated for an Automata project (a machine with computations) required for our Things That Think class at CU Boulder. 
Our Automaton is taken from the 'Despicable Me' movie, where the girls have bombs for beds and align on top of another when it is time to sleep. 


Input:
LED light, Switch 

Output:
When lights are OFF:
- The beds start moving towards the wall till aligned.
- The girls wake lie down

When lights are ON:
- The beds descending
- The girls wake up by a sitting up motion
