** I hope to attach the origami Jacob’s Ladder in the same way that I did in the Fitz & Servo video below? But to a small mobile surface (not a previously existing one like a kitchen counter). Also, originally I had hoped to make a project with a stepper motor, a moon phase simulator kind of thing mentioned in an earlier post here. However the hardware store I went to didn’t have the screw terminal I was looking for, so looked around for other options in the store that could maybe work with the other motor I had and saw zip-ties + adhesive squares. I ended up weaving the zip tie through the adhesive square to make a self adhesive cable tie mount but would definitely still recommend purchasing them in the future ❤  I’m also interested in thinking about a visual duality that could be fun for a jacob’s ladder to flip through? like this version from the 19th century switches between 2 images?

Jacobs Ladder & Servo Arduino Code:

#include<Servo.h>
Servo servo1;

void setup() {
servo1.attach(9);

}

void loop() {
servo1.write(0);
delay(5000);
servo1.write(180);
delay(5000);
}

 

Fitz & Servo Arduino Code: 
#include<Servo.h>
Servo servo1;

void setup() {
servo1.attach(9);
}

void loop() {
servo1.write(0);
delay(1000);
servo1.write(180);
delay(500);
}
