The power supply is set to 5 amps (maximum) and it reduces the voltage applied to achieve that current level. When the voltage on the capacitor approaches 5.4 volts, the current level drops--these levels have to be "dialed in" to the power supply.

The slinky is attached with tape--I think it will work on a "seesaw type board" as long as the slinky is attached. Good luck with your version!

Bob,We're looking at ways to make it distinctive. I've found a way to coat the 3d print so that it will accept her paint without "bleeding" down the print layers--that should give her much more control over the paint process. The tree will have 30-50 individually blinking lights. How we decorate the engine as well as what happens on the second car (and half the third car) are still under consideration--we like movement, lights, interesting things. This instructable is just a "proof that we can build something that will ride the rail and pick up power," so we're happy with the current result.

I think you can get 10 meters out of this, but you might want to make the body a little longer and the rear wheels larger in diameter. The distance is mainly determined by how many times the rear wheel turns before the rubber band is unwound, so a larger wheel (as long as the rubber band can turn it) will take you farther.
In step number 17, "vision_soft.ino" is the code for the Pixy camera.
Thank you! I enjoyed the challenge of putting it all together.

Great detective work!
Here's another image of the bar:
Thank you--it's always great to hear words of encouragement from you! A video of the entire project can be seen here I have kept up with most of the steps at this location: https://hackaday.io/project/11397-santas-shopIt looks like we'll get the thing into a display window in a local business in December--keeping our fingers crossed.We have enjoyed this, seeing what we could put together just for fun (no commercial benefit at all).
If the power for the Arduino comes from a low quality wall wart, then there is interference. I'm speculating that "noise" from the wall wart travels along the wire and is so close to the antenna and Arduino that it creates problems. I have not seen any problems caused by wall warts in the room where the sensor is operating. Mainly, I just wanted to point out that powering the Arduino from a wall wart may result in failure to detect.
