Spotted in the MAKE Flickr pool:
Flickr user Rumtopf built this web-controlled car launcher to allow visitors to his family’s to launch a toy car out of a closet for their son to play with. I like the simple design, which allows up to five cars to be launched using a single motor and light sensor. You can visit their website to launch a car yourself (only during regular toddler business hours). Looks like a fun project!
