PARTS LIST:

  1. 1  18.5 cm/Radius Foam core circle
  2. 6 5 in/Diameter Foam core circles
  3.  1 8inch long Bolt
  4. 2 big Washer
  5. Arduino Uno
  6. AC/DC Charger Plug
  7. No-Spill Paint cups
  8. Blick Egg HandHeld Brush
  9. Stepper Motor, 200 steps/revs, 12v
  10. Timing Belt GT2, 1164mm long
  11. Aluminum GT2 Timing Pulley
  12. Adafruit motor Mount for Arduino
  13. Stepper Motor Mount
  14. Two Arcade game motors
  15.  Two Three Blade Propeller
  16. DC MOTOR
  17. Battery
  18. Battery Pack

IMPLEMENTATION TUTORIAL:

  1. STEP 1: Gather materials shown above.
  2. STEP 2: Cut the wood into 3 pieces of 2 feet length and one piece of one foot in length.
  3. STEP 3: Put the 3 pieces of 2 feet wood and put them together in a pyramid like structure. Then drill a hole with a 3/8th inches in radius and 1/4th of an inch from the top of the structure and drill a bolt through the hole. On the supporting beam, put a bolt through and attach it to the one piece of the one foot length wood in a way that it is suspended vertically on the top of the other 2 pieces of 2 feet wood
  4. STEP 4:  Cut out one piece of foam and 6 similar ones and stack them so the smaller 6 pieces are bellow the biggest piece.
  5. STEP 5: On the bigger piece of foam, cut 8 holes of similar size that match the size of the cups to be placed in them.
  6.  STEP 6: Attach a stepper motor 3 inches from the bottom of the right leg.
  7. STEP 7: Attach a belt from the stepper motor to the inner foam core wheel.
  8. STEP 8: Mount an Arduino and motor shield together. 
  9. STEP 9: Program the Arduino speed and turning.
  10. STEP 10: Attach buttons to the Arduino.
  11. STEP 11: Re-program the Arduino so the buttons move the wheel. (When attaching the Arduino and the supporting legs, saw the top of the supporting leg into a 30′ inch hole so the Arduino can be more easily attached to it. 
  12. STEP 12: Drill hole into White water cup, about as wide as the DC motor Axle
  13. STEP 13: Attach DC Motor to Watering cup, by putting the axle through the hole in the watering cup. Use hot glue to secure the motor.
  14. STEP 14: Attach both propellers to the axle. Use hot glue to secure the propellers
  15. STEP 15: Connect motor to battery. Use solder to secure the battery to the motor.

  1. TO-DO:

    -Solder second button
    -Slow water motor to reduce splash
    -Tune wheel and belt to secure it, to run more reliably.
    -Add lip in back so the belt does not slip off.
    -Add code to post
