My third instructable:
How to create a programmable rising and spinning Halloween Skull using fischertechnik elements!
My vision was to create a scene with a skull rising out of a coffin, spin in the air and return to the coffin. The device raising and spinning the skull would be hidden beneath white tissue paper. This is an instructable that focuses just on the controlling mechanism.
I play with different educational manipulatives for a living. (Visit www.weirdrichard.com). Over the years I have built different holiday themed models using all sorts of toys. It is very easy to create awesome Halloween models with fischertechnik elements. This instructable will describe how to create a spooky Halloween Skull using fischertechnik and a programmable brick.
Note: The CAD looking images were generated by LDraw/MLCAD and a fischertechnik elements library.
