USB servo squirter


Here is a great project for learning how to control servos. They’ve made a USB controlled squirt gun using the USB NerdKit, a pump and a servo. This is a great tutorial to learn about PWM and controlling servos. The tutorial is very thorough, with great pictures and a video of it all , which you can see after the break.

[thanks Humberto]

    Nice kit. I’ll be looking forward to buy it.

    I’m a total newbie when it comes to this but how does it compare to Arduino and others like it ?

    I would like to play with LED related projects.

    For about $20 you can get a freeduino (an Arduino clone). The software is free and easy to learn. There are lots of example code to get you started.
