Arduino Controlled Minecraft Creeper Project

Over in the Adafruit forums, Tim shared with us his huge 8ft tall Minecraft Creeper project that him and some friends built.  It is controlled by an Arduino, and the sound effects come from an Adafruit Wave Shield.

In Minecraft there are a variety of monsters, the most troublesome of these is the “Creeper.” Creepers are plant monsters who explodes when they get next to you usually leaving a crater in the aftermath. Woe to the player who is surprised by their distinctive SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSBOOOM!

In respect to Minecraft’s king of monsters I and some of my cohorts thought it would be entertaining to undertake a project to build a creeper prop with some animated features for Holloween this year. Our hope is to give an authentic creeper experience to some trick-or-treaters! Naturally, making robocreeper actually explode is not something we can really do in our urban environment, but we can load the thing with RGB LEDs, motors, motion sensors, and a loud speaker that will let you know when you have entered the blast zone!

Be sure to check out the build log gallery on Google+. Nice work Tim!
