Time Tracker

Time Tracker is a doll house where the figurines move according  to the time of a user-set location.  The figurines represent the activities a person might be performing if they lived at that location.  For example, from 9am to 5pm the person might be working, from 6pm to 10pm relaxing for the evening.

At its heart are two Servo Motors, where a magnet is attached to each.  The figurines each have a magnet glued to the bottom, so that when their magnet is connected to the motor's magnet, they can move according to the position of the motor.
