Here are some resources for building the quick motor circuit we designed for the Tomorrow's Toys
workshop at Anne Arundel Community College.
This circuit was developed from the Adafruit learning site. Keep in mind that we are using the MaKey MaKey
as an Arduino; on the Adafruit page they are using a standard Arduino but you can see where the wires
go to the 5V pin, the ground pin (gnd) and a digital out pin.
The Adafruit page can be found here:
It is a good circuit for testing a motor that requires little current, but a better circuit can be found on this page from
the NYU ITP group. This circuit would require you to get a few more components, most of which can be found cheaply
at your local Radio Shack:
Here are some images of the circuit:
