God Save the Queen!

After finally figuring out how to connect the Servo Motor with the Nano Arduino, I thought of imitating Queen Elizabeth’s iconic royal wave. An article online inspired me to do so after thinking it was the most ridiculous article in the world.

Also, I had another idea that I mentioned previously on the blog and it’s to create a hand that would help you clap. I got my inspiration from a popular saying in my country that says, “one hand can’t clap alone”, which is equivalent to “it takes two to tango.” I thought using the servo motor would be perfect for this project since it only rotates 180 degrees.

NOTE: look future Dina, all you have to do to correctly connect the servo motor to the Arduino, is to connect the positive (red wire) of the motor to the VIN pin on the Arduino.
