littleBits Projects: Creepy Eye-Tracking Santa and Sound-Activated Bow Tie

This is part of an on-going series of posts about littleBits projects. littleBits is available in the Adafruit store – Starter KitExtended Kit, and Deluxe Kit.

Creepy Eye-Tracking Santa

He sees you when you are sleeping… He knows when you’re awake. Santa watches your every move, just like Great Uncle Edward. This creepy portrait has motion triggers that sense when you are near and eyes controlled by a servo that watch you wherever you go. The double AND, double OR, inverter, and latch make up the logic behind Santa’s eye movement.

Add some fun to your ensemble and surprise your guests with this quirky, sound-reactive bow tie. It moves on a servo and is activated by the sound of your voice! Control how it moves with a pulse and a dimmer.
