Take it apart

A project log for Hacking a Flippity Fish™️

Every time we turn on this new cat toy, our cat gets scared. Maybe it wiggles too much. So I hacked it.

Here's how it looks and behaves after removing the soft exterior and take apart the insides:

It wiggles following two patterns. First one is "continuous" and is shown above. The second one is "pulsed" and is shown below. In both cases the motor is moved back and forth to do the wiggling.


The next step is to get rid of the microcontroller to put our own control signals.
