2020-11-10 (Tu) IoTHackDay2020 Cloud Ouija

I figured the most logical way to test servos on a Ouija board was to mount them directly to the board. First, I had to measure the 55-gram servos because I have never used them before. I should have been able to find the dimensions online, but I did all right with a digital caliper. Before I cut into a large piece of plastic, I tested on a bit of scrap, and it fit cleanly. The holes even lined up on all edges.

I added servo motor sockets to the Monospace font plate from earlier. This board has the same dimensions as before, but it would not fit in the frame with the motors. The letters in this version are right against the top instead of in the middle. There are four 55-gram servos, so this one may end up sitting on the shelf and spelling out words for no reason. We'll see.
