Mechatronic Tank

Mechatronic Tank @ Beatty Robotics.

Dear Adafruit,

My daughters (Genevieve 9 and Camille 11) and I recently completed building a new robot that uses one of your products. We cut up a couple of Blinky Belts into small pieces, re-soldered them together, and integrated them into the under-frame and gun turret of our mechantronic tank robot. We communicate with the Blinky Belt’s Arduino (which is dedicated to handling the lighting system) from the main microcontroller of the robot, which is an Arduino Mega. Here is the page for the robot. Be sure to watch the video to see the lights in action. Thanks for the cool product and tutorial!  🙂
