Need help designing actuator system for display bottles in a table Answered

Need help designing actuator system for display bottles in a table.

I will need 12 VDC actuators with limit switches, power supply etc.

Ultimately i would like it to be activated from a click on a iPad image but not a must.

Any help would be compensated for.

I am in Toronto Canada

I am not quite picturing this.

Although I can kind of guess. The word "actuators" implies movement, and the words, "limit switches", kind of imply a few different positions, like as an example, the bird in a cuckoo clock.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuckoo_clock

The cuckoo bird has kind of has a "home" position, when it is hidden inside clock, behind tiny closed door(s), on the front of a clock.

Also the cuckoo bird has an "activated" position, when the tiny door is open, and maybe also the bird is pushed forward a few centimeters beyond the door, and maybe also the bird is singing too.

Finally the bird has other, intermediate, positions too, through which it necessarily must move, when it travels between its "home" position and its "activated" position.

Also there must be some purpose, or essential features, to your plan.

Like maybe the bottles are hidden (from the view of persons standing near the table) within the table, when it their "home" positions? So when they emerge, it is like, "Oh, wow! Big surprise!" Or something like that.

Maybe the home position serves some maintenance, or security, function? Like, maybe this keeps dust off the bottles, or keeps them safe from thieves.

Or maybe the home position serves to make the whole system more compact? In other words the whole thing becomes smaller, tidier, when its display mechanisms are retracted and buttoned up?

By the way, if this uh, display facilitating mechanism, already exists, somewhere, you could do everyone reading this a big favor by just providing us with a link to a picture of that thing.

Or even if something merely similar exists, you could help us a lot by saying, "I want something like this thing, but different." Then you provide a link to a picture of that thing, and maybe also explain how you want yours to be different.
