It's Mother's Day! I made this for my mom.

What it does

The box gradually opens as you approach it, revealing a special message.

How we built it

We built it using an Arduino, two servos, an ultrasonic sensor, a LED strip, and assorted power supplies.

Challenges we ran into

A single servo struggled to open the lid, so we had to use multiple servos in sync.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It works AND my mom likes it.

What we learned

A cool way of combining art and technology.

What's next for Mechanized Mother's Day

A nicer box, and less hot glue.
