From the Forums: Doctor Who Cyberman “Handles” Project #arduino
Prop maker ISFLohon shared a Doctor Who Cyberman “Handles” project on the Adafruit Forums. The helmet is in good shape, now it is time to explore Arduino options for adding some other interactive elements including audio voice:
Hello. I am a Prop Maker who is now looking to dive into making electronics in my projects. I made a helmet based of the longest lasting Doctor Who companion known as Handles. Handles is a head of a Cyberman who can talk back to you.
…So What I am wanting to do is make handles talk and the face light up as he talks. I was thinking of using a tilt ball switch to activate the voice of handles but I just am not sure what the best plan of action is. I have the arduino but I am a complete noob. Any help would be Awesome!
Here is a link to my build of the helmet. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.727866843891813.1073741850.549594578385708&type=3
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.
