!!Warning: this project include high voltage and fire. Do not repeat!!!

!!! Every time i was testing this i went outside where it can´t light anything!!!

When you press a swith servo will open butane bottle and turn on high voltage supply to light it.

Parts list:

1x Arduino
1x ZVS high voltage power supply
1x Breadboard
2x 10k resistors
1x IRFZ44N Mosfet or any N-chanel mosfet that can handle ZVS
1x Button
1x 12V power supply for ZVS
1x Butane bottle/ lighter

Can be used in film as visual effect or for setting off fireworks from safe distance But I do not recommend it.

#include 

//this code was created by Štěpán Pomikálek combining Button sample and Knob sample


Servo myservo;
// constants won't change. They're used here to set pin numbers:
const int buttonPin = 2;     // the number of the pushbutton pin
const int ZVSPin =  8;      // the number of the ZVS pin

// variables will change:
int buttonState = 0;         // variable for reading the pushbutton status

void setup() {
  myservo.attach(9);
  // initialize the LED pin as an output:
  pinMode(ZVSPin, OUTPUT);
  // initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:
  pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);
}

void loop() {
  // read the state of the pushbutton value:
  buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);

  // check if the pushbutton is pressed. If it is, the buttonState is HIGH and servo will move:
  if (buttonState == HIGH) {
    // turn LED on:
    digitalWrite(ZVSPin, HIGH);
    myservo.write(20);
  } else {
    // turn LED off:
    digitalWrite(ZVSPin, LOW);
    myservo.write(110);
  }
}
