It’s not all about physical design, though — it’s time to start programming the ATTiny microcontrollers with AtmelStudio and C++. Thanks to a bit of Boolean logic and binary arithmetic, Ben can control the motor with a technique called “pulse width modulation,” or PWM! Make sure you follow along with the build over on the element14 Community and chime in with any ideas you have.
