Transforming Gingerbread House

Robots in disguise… as delicious gingerbread and candy

I had a rare few days off during Christmas and had entered into a friendly gingerbread house building competition. For fun I decided to add a little mechatronics to the mix.

The contraption was made using some regular servo motors controlled by an Arduino. The frame was made of glue-gunned together cardboard, with gingerbread and candy pieces attached to the outside using sticky icing, the traditional gingerbread house mortar.
