1 x pololu stepper driver A4988
1 x stepper motor (eg. 35BYG104)
1 x Arduino Proto Shield
1 x LED
1 x push button 12x12 mm
1 x 10kOhm  resistor
1 x 320Ohm resistor

<p>Sorry if I am a bit dumb, but where are the details for the electronics?</p><p>thanks, so cool project</p>
<p>I used your design and made ardunio based split flap. Thanx</p>
<p>Nice job!!!</p><p>I'm glad you found the instructions helpful.</p><p>Bye.</p>
<p>A very good information is provided so far thanks . i read on many sites but the content on this site is very good. i like to read about cranes and i have also many cranes actually i see many people did same thing he takes <a href="http://aaacgulf.net/" rel="nofollow">Crane On Rent</a> from different company and run his business successfully . i like this thing.</p>
The answer is in the question.
its the magic 8-balls replacement
Nice! <br>Went to my Blog: <br>http://faz-voce-mesmo.blogspot.pt/2013/02/ray-gun-o-filme-desenhar-objectos-em-3d.html
whoa that's way cool, do you think it possible to turn it into a clock?
yes, the original Split Flap display technology was used for clock too. <br> <br> <br>
Didn't Marty McFly have one of those in BTTF?
This would be perfect for <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oblique_Strategies" rel="nofollow">oblique strategy cards.</a>
I don't see the sketch uploaded here. Am I missing it somewhere?
Opss... A .zip file with the code is now uploaded.
Sweet, thanks
its a random rolodex :D <br>pretty sweet!
You could turn this into a Mutoscope. Just come up with a Steampunk and like case and you got it !
Don't need a machine ! <br>&quot;Should I ask for a raise ?&quot; : YES ! <br>&quot;Should I call this cute Guy ?&quot; : YES ! <br>&quot;Should I sell ?&quot; : YES ? <br>&quot;Should I buy a boat with the money and live in a Pacific paradise with the cute guy and without my boss ever after&quot; ?&quot; : YES ! <br>Simple !&hellip; <br> <br>Love your idea ! <br>Thanks for sharing. <br> <br>
That is too cool! Nicework <br>That Arduino case in the pictures is pretty slick too, did you create it? I'd sure like to get my hands on those files.
No, I find it on the internet, google &quot;Arduino Cases by variador&quot;.
Hahaha! Very cool idea! <br>I also like very much the little Gecko on top! Nice touch. :)
