Assignment 5 – Curiosity Cabinet

I decided to reinterpret the curiosity cabinet to be a box that you never really saw the internals or contents of.  I did this using a servo with a modified arm that moves two panels and a pair of foil switches mounted to two doors.  The box is hand-cut from black foamcore and held together using friction, neodymium magnets, and rubber bands (when the servo is active).  The panels of the box are all sprung with rubber bands.
