Spinning the pillar should not be difficult from a physical standpoint but navigating to a HOME position or any arbitrary position by the fastest route will become important shortly. A debugging switch array with buttons to turn forward and backward will be easier than typing serial commands. A couple of keyswitches on breakout boards were attached to a solderless breadboard.

Two buttons were limiting. Three buttons should make it easy to turn forward, backward, and rehome itself. These buttons may not be used during the regular operation, or they could be repurposed, but they will be wired directly to the central controller.

A prototyping board was outfitted with headers to connect with the keyswitches as well as the H-bridge. Only the 2x18 header was broken out so an Arduino shield could still connect. This doesn't seem likely.
