Introduction: Motorized World Globe

About: I am an American teaching English at Shangluo University, Shaanxi. I like making machines that do interesting but fairly useless things - I call them Quixotic Machines.

Wanted to motorize my world globe so stuck a continuous servo on the top of it and hooked to Arduino Uno. Then the only decision was do I turn it continuously, occassionally or sporadically. I chose occassionally.

Took out the top bolt, replaced with my own bolt and connected that to the servo. Simple in idea but had to work at it a bit. I like things that move a little. This will complement my electro-magnetic pendulum.

    Thank you. I noticed that I am more interested in the globe when it's moving. I just like things to move.
