Step 1: Materials

Water Bottle

Sprayer head

Motor

Tape

Fan Blade

Jumper Wires

LinkIT ONE

Step 2: Sprayer

Un-screw the cap of the water bottle and screw the sprayer head on. The sprayer I used had a nub on the bottom that causes the water to some out as a mist. I recommend using one of theses but it not necessary.

Step 3: Circuit

Connect the battery to the LinkIt ONE. Then connect the 5v and ground of the LinkIT to the motor. Then attach the fan. I constructed my blade out of cut hard plastic, but other materials could work as well. However, take into account that the blade will be hit with water, I chose plastic as it was light weight and water proof.

Step 4: Final Touches

Tape the motor on top of the sprayer head, with the blade sticking in front. Next, tape the LinkIT ONE on to the back. Voila, you're done, simply turn on the LinkIT one and spray away.
