Blog 5 update is the drive system for the globe to spin. I am using a pully system with a rotary tool as the motor. After lots of testing over the past week I found that the motor can't handle the tension and started to burn up. This is a little setback, but it did work so I just need to use a different motor. I am thinking of using a sewing maching motor as they are stronger and have a speed of up to 7000 rpm.

 

Below are pictures of the setup:

 

 

 

This update is fairly short but was one of the biggest part of my project (Besides the programming). The photos explain more than I would be able to.

 

Thank you for reading
