Thanks to Bruce and his son Jacob for sending in this fun project!
This winter, my son and I created a remote control cooler that will open and deliver bottled beverages. We are using an Arduino Mega board with 2 Adafruit motor shields mounted to it to run 3 linear actuators, an electromagnet, a stepper motor, and 2 servos. Also showing off a couple of other cool-er accessories for our remote control robotic cooler.
Featured Adafruit Product!
Adafruit Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield for Arduino v2 Kit: The original Adafruit Motorshield kit is one of our most beloved kits, which is why we decided to make something even better. We have upgraded the shield kit to make the bestest, easiest way to drive DC and Stepper motors. This shield will make quick work of your next robotics project! We kept the ability to drive up to 4 DC motors or 2 stepper motors, but added many improvements: Read more.
