This is a functional ping pong balls launcher designed to be controlled by an arduino (or any other microcontroller).

It uses a servo to dispense the balls and two motors with wheels to give speed and shoot them.




In order to build this you will need the following material:

  • Two servos
  • Two motors
  • Two o-rings
  • Two hinges
  • Bolts
  • Spacers
  • Arduino (or any other micro-controller) and an h-bridge
  • Ping Pong Balls!

On the pictures you can see all the assembling steps.

Have fun!

My parts and everything I needed to make this project were provided by Artica - http://www.artica.cc/ Thanks guys!
