This mechanical bull was created as a weekend hobby. The creation process was simple and did not last more than two hours. The materials I already had at home. For those who wish to make an equal, will be a good opportunity to recycle materials and learn how to use the joystick shield with Arduino. Hope you enjoy.

Step 1: Materials:

- A volunteer (doll)
- Pieces of cardboard
- An empty soft drink
- Two servomotors
- A Arduino Uno
- A Joystic Shield
- Arms for the servants
- Three screws
- nuts and a washers
- Hot glue, scissors, knife, etc. ...
hi I love it. I want to ask a question. Will u show joystick controller connections? <br>I didnt see it <br>http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/F5A/JKD1/HDOW3SAE/F5AJKD1HDOW3SAE.LARGE.jpg <br>I have a gamepad. And ı want to use it. But I didnt use.
Oops! My mistake! I thought I had put a figure showing the connections. I connected the joystick shield as follows: <br> <br>Wires-----------Sensor Shield----------Joystick Shield <br>black wire------------ G--------------------- (gate) <br>red wire -------------- V--------------------- (5vots) <br>gray wire ------------ A0-------------------- (X axis) <br>orange wire --------- A1-------------------- (Y axis) <br> <br>As soon as I can, I get a better picture.
This is great! I hope to build something similar for my &quot;Froggy World&quot; amusement park--of course I'll credit you for the concept. <br>I like the fact that you used cardboard--it's a great material for models and prototypes; and actually holds up fairly well.
Thank you! I love using cardboard because it is easy and inexpensive. Your playground is getting very good too. I'm watching. I am proud to know that you're gonna build a toy with the concept that I created. Then show us.
lol, that is a fun lil' project.
Nifty idea! well done <br>
