For this assignment I used a potentiometer and servo motor to make a manually controlled limpy crawler.  I call it a limpy crawler because it only has one leg, so it sort of limps around.  I made the leg out of one half of a clothes pin, and attached it to the servo with zip ties.  Because this did not crawl very well on its own, I attached a small rubber foot to provide better traction.  The Servo body was put on a sponge to help it glide along a little better.
