This is a electronic rubber band shooter using a littleBits kit.

Step 1: Parts Needed

You will need:

  • A block of wood [about 2 1/2 by 8 inches long]
  • Double sided foam tape and scissors
  • Rubber bands
  • littleBits parts (http://littlebits.cc)
    • Power module
    • Button module
    • Servo module
    • Servo motor
    • Battery

Step 2: Build the Circuit

Connect the power to the button module and then to the servo module.

Test that the servo operates when you press the button.

Step 3: Attach Servo Motor to Wood

Cut a piece of double-sided foam tape and place on end of wood. Then attach the servo motor as shown.

Step 4: Attach Circuit and Battery to the Wood Piece

Attach circuit with rubber bands to wood. Make sure all modules are secure.

Put double-sided foam tape on the battery and attach it to the other side of the wood.

Step 5: Load Rubber Band and Shoot!

Load rubber band by stretching it from one end of the wood to the servo motor attachment.
