You’re going to build two circuits that communicate with each other wirelessly. First build the ROTOLAMP CIRCUIT.
Now, PRESS THE CIRCUIT ONTO THE MOUNTING BOARD. Make sure the mounted circuit looks just like the image below so everything fits nicely for the final build.
Start building the TRANSMITTER CIRCUIT.
Finish the TRANSMITTER CIRCUIT by adding a POWERSNAP to the middle bitSnap on the transmitter circuit. Then, press onto a mounting board.
TURN OFF THE PROJECTOR CIRCUIT AND ADD WHEELS TO THE DC MOTORS. The wheels will help you spin your projector and provide the structure for the projector to stand on.
Stand the Rotolamp up with one wheel as the base and TEST OUT YOUR CIRCUIT. Make sure the wireless receiver is on the SAME CHANNEL (a,b,c,d, or e) as your transmitter. Use the transmitter circuit to spin the projector!
Build the ROTOLAMP SLEEVE from templates E1 and E2 and place it on top of the Rotolamp circuit. Make sure to turn off your Rotolamp circuit while building the sleeve.
Time to construct the UFO! Place the two small paper plates together so the outer rims touch. Tape those edges together. This is the base of the UFO.
Set your scene. Use Play-doh or Sculpy to shape the characters in your short film, then grab a camera and start rolling! Once you’ve finished, upload it to YouTube, then share it on the Community Project Page using the hashtag #hackhalloween.
