05.2 mini-project: structure & mechanism [Michael Lin]

So the premise is to build a sound sensing device that spills sand in to a jar/container when a loud noise is heard.  Originally, two different colors of sand is supposed to be dumped by a servo-controlled hatch powered by two servos.  However, the second servo kept idling, where the motor had constant current in it, which I believe was interfering with the sound sensor.

Here are two hatches, funnel bridge to the container, and sound sensor
