Thank you for the advice. I'm going to be working tirelessly on this project all weekend and on my day off from school too.

I'll figure it out myself I guess.

Oh. Now I understand what you mean. I did sweep and it worked, but I haven't tried knob yet, because I don't have a potentiometer.

Example sketches of the hand?

I have obtained all of the materials that I need for the hand.  smiley-grin Once the hand is completed (which should be tonight), where do the Arduino and the servo motors come in? Keep in mind that I'm still a beginner, and I don't know the ins and outs of robotics. Here are the articles if you're interested in reading them. http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Robotics_p003.shtml

Is it possible to put these into a breadboard? http://www.amazon.com/SparkFun-Arduino-Stackable-Header-Kit/dp/B004G56J8W/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

How many servo motors should I be using?
53  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Need some help for a science project. on: January 10, 2013, 12:03:38 am
I just need to obtain a battery that can support all of these servo motors.

I got the wires and the breadboard yesterday.  smiley

Yes, I looked at the tutorials. I'm starting to understand the concept more.

Well normally at this stage of your project, you'd be more likely to use some breadboarding wire to stick into the servo's socket and then attach those wires to whatever is going to power the servo - which should not be the arduino - it can't provide sufficient current for more than one, if that.

Later you might wire it up using a male connector into the servo's socket so that it's easier to replace the servo from your robot if it is damaged, or solder it all together if you decide you don't need that luxury.
What should it be powered by then?

So I need to buy these wires to plug them into the sockets?
58  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Need some help for a science project. on: January 07, 2013, 05:53:30 pm
Why did you remove the wire from the socket? What do you intent to attach it to?
The 5V port on the Arduino. Did I do something wrong?  smiley-confuse

Is this what its supposed to look like when you take the wire out?
60  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Need some help for a science project. on: January 07, 2013, 01:38:38 am
I got the red wire out successfully, and when I put it into 5V, it felt pretty loose. Is it supposed to feel that way?
