The servo is a controllable motor that can swing back and forth or be turned to a specific position. Attach a flag to the arm to make it wave back and forth. There are even a few littleBits accessories made just for the servo (like the mechanical arm).

Note that this bit is NOT compatible with the following kits
  - Space Rover Inventor Kit
  - Cross axle mechanical arm (not available separately)
  - Cross axle motorMate (not available separately)

For a replacement servo bit for the kits and accessories above, see the "Servo: cross axle"

Description:

The servo is a motor that can swing back and forth (like windshield wipers) as opposed to spinning round and round (like the wheels of a car). Add a mechanical arm and a great way to make your inventions throw, wave, sweep, and point.

The servo has two modes. In T"turn" mode, the input from other Bits determines the position of the hub–try using a slide dimmer to set the angle you want. This is great for when you want to throw things or point in a specific direction. In SWING mode, the servo will move back and forth on its own like a pair of windshield wipers or an automatic sweeper–the input signal controls the speed of the swing.

The servo's range of motion is about 110 degrees.

HOW IT WORKS

Phase 1

Button receives a current as an input. when you press the button, the bit sends the same amount of current to the output.

Capabilities:

- what values does this record / pass through?

- what conditions does it work in? limitations?
