Mechanical Hermit – Kyle

The mechanical hermit doesn’t like being bothered. When the kids get close the hermit uses one leg (a crank slider on a dc motor) to get away. When kids get really close, it uses the crank slider and another mechanism (a four bar linkage on attached to a servo) to move faster. Distance is determined by a range finder.
