  3. I used a continuous rotation servo and a wheel hub to make a place for the magnet to travel on. I glued magnets to the wheel and the skater's foot and tested it using a roll of tape as a platform. I used the center from a spool of ribbon to create an "ice lake" platform from blue shiny cardstock and a piece of clear acetate on top to look like ice.
