Since my sleeping is very deeply, I can't wake up with alarm clock, I thought for a simple PIC-microcontroller project to wake me up. I will suspend a "bucket" full of water from the ceiling above my bed, and at a certain specific time, the PIC will move a motor that causes the water to fall on me :D :D.
But that is not a joke!!
Actually I can write some simple programs with mikroC for dimming a LED, making sound frequences, switches, transistors and relays, for example.
I have searched the web, found many motor types: DC, AC, servo and stepper, but have no idea about the suitable one for my project (it should be able to load a fully bucket). I want also to know how to run it.
Any help would be appropriated
EDIT: I want the water to fall by degrees, hence the motor, not toppling it directly.
