By getting onto a website we made, you can control Don the beaver! You can move his head, shoulders and elbows to make him do various poses. He even knows how to clap and dance a little bit. Don works by having an ESP8266 acts as a client to the ENGR server. The client reads a JSON file on the server through a GET request and moves the servos on Don according to the JSON file. You can alter the JSON file that is read by the client though the webpage. By moving the sliders and clicking the buttons you are sending POST requests to the server to edit the JSON file.
