I'm currently using two UNO for my project and I'm just completely stuck with how to make a similar mechanical movement like in this link, http://www.engadget.com/2008/04/28/festo-airjelly-flies-through-the-air-with-the-greatest-of-ease/
. I can make do with a much simpler articulation as long as it's recognizably a jellyfish. My project is to make a jellyfish-like machine mounted on top of a standing lamp so as a viewer walks nearby, light's pulses and the billowing motion would moves a little faster.
I have the idea of using counterweight down the shaft so I can use a servo without any need for any stronger motor. there would be string from along the 6 or 8 'wings' looped around a wheel on top of the lamp and leading down to the counterweight. I am just stuck trying to figure this out.
I know that my question may not exactly be clear and I'm not too sure how to explains it better so please ask me anything for clarification if you want to. I am meeting my project partner soon to discuss this so I'll post up on any progress I may make.
