Started out as just a collection of snaps as I stripped down an engine bought off ebay. (To replace my old engine, which had suffered catastrophic failure). The snaps were so that I remembered how everything went, so I could put it back together again.
Then I realized it’d be quite cool to make it an animation. found some suitable music, rekindled my ancient knowledge of Premiere, storyboarded it, shot it as I worked on the engine (my poor DSLR got covered in engine oil), this was the result.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

aaah…. i loved the few pieces at the end 😀
( of course they were not doing anything important in the engine ! )
Ha! I love the ending!
Always those few ‘extra’ parts 🙂
Hey I know that motor. That is out of a Triumph Spitfire. A 1275 if I am not mistaken. I have spent more time than I would care to admit working on these motors. I though I did a good job of documenting my work, but this is something else. Nice work!
