Solar mobile

Solar mobile
My first solar-powered mobile. It’s vaguely dragonfly-shaped and has one of those glass disco balls on the other end that diffracts the sunlight. The “wings” are made of flexible film solar cells wired in parallel to power a tiny DC motor about the size of a pill. Whenever the sun shines, the mobile buzzes slowly around its fulcrum and casts little rainbows all around.
