This machine will turn itself around in circles until optimal light hits it.

Parts:

-A garden solar light.

-A motor.

Step 1: Condition the Panel.

Cut the LED bulb from the circuit of the panel, and solder two long wires to the solder points where the LED used to be.

Step 2: Attach the Motor.

Solder the two long wires to the terminals of the motor, and fasten the motor the the outside of the case, at a slight angle.

<p>Hi, the motor moves left and right, doesnt it? If so, how does the solar garden light control the motor or is it just moving clockwise or anticlockwise? Sorry, im newbie.</p>
<p>that's alright, sorry I took so long to reply. The motor will move in one direction in circles, and it will stop when it detects enough light to start generating power. It's a very rudimentary but still effective system.</p>
<p>if u could explain a bit more about it will be help full.. </p>
<p>I've already explained to the best of my ability. You cut the led off of a garden solar lamp and replace it with a motor, then fasten the motor to the side so it will move when light stops hitting the panel.</p>
<p>oh ok sliding ok so the photo is tilted oh okok , i thought it was hanging on the wall near the window , hey nice work my friend ..</p>
<p>Thank you! </p>
