This project requires an external part.

This PROJect requires a laser pointer. We do not recommend using the Laser Diodes we sell in the Adafruit shop. Your corner store, or Amazon, sells a very low-powered laser pointer.

The IR Receiver is used to receive infrared signals from the remote. These signals will then be sent to the Metro, which will tell the servo where to move.

The Mini Remote contains an IR LED to transmit signals to the IR Receiver connected to the Metro M0. 

The Hobby Servo will be used as a platform to rotate the laser pointer left and right.
