Goldfish

My papercraft goldfish mounted on a servo and controlled by a Picaxe 08m.











He turned out ok except I have to do some work on the eyes.








On a breadboard for now while i play with the code for the picaxe. At the moment he "swims" by oscillating the servo. He pauses occasionally and changes direction.

The Picaxe processors are perfect for this kind of work.
They are coded in basic and are easy to use.

Ok, it's weeks later and I finally got around to mounting him in a bowl.
I printed a pic of some gravel and cut it to fit the top of the bowl. The servo, controller and battery all fit in the bottom.
