Snowcation Fantasy

by kburrus

Published on April 26, 2015

Originally this was part of the "Tell us a Travel Tale" Challenge.
This is a beach weekend teleportation device. After all this snow, Leah and I really need a warm breeze, some sunshine, and waves. The mood was topped off with Jimmy Buffet and drinks served by R2.  I made this while "trapped" in my house for a week this winter by snow.  

How To Make It

1

Build a beach chair with LEGOs, find Star Wars toys from childhood and set the mood with Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville.

2

Attach the branch to a power source. Add the long LED for the sun.

3

Attach the servo to a wire to the branch. Attach a drink umbrella to the servo with tape.

4

Attach the fan to the branch and decorate with yellow tissue paper strips to symbolize a warm breeze.

5

Enjoy the fantasy of R2 serving fruity drinks on the beach.
