Barn door opener V2.0

Another project with a lazy background. Every time I have to put the cars or my bike inside our barn, it highly annoys me I have to get out of the car, walk to the door, find out it is locked (50/50 chance), get back to the car, turn it off to get the keys, open the door, start the car and then drive it inside. Also the doors are very heavy, and require a lot of force to open. Now it opens and closes with the push of a button.

Solar Beetle

A fairly old project that I still had to post. A small car on solar power. It contains a circuit which charges a capacitor, when it's full the capacitor gets discharged trough the electric motor.

The left half of the solar panel is connected to the right motor and vice versa. This way he always turns to the light. Vehicles that exhibit this behavior are also known as Braitenberg vehicles.
