E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Puppet with Interactive Electronic Modifications – What You Built!

Pasted Image 10 6 14 7 40 AM

John Guarnero has been foraging through the Adafruit online catalog producing a number of great movie props with some stellar electronic modifications and interactive elements, including this ET puppet with light-up heart:

This ET is a NECA puppet that was modified with the following enhancements.

  • Robe – purchased from Target
  • Fading Heart – 16×24 red LED Matrix panel purchased from adafruit.com
  • Audio – Adafruit wave Shield for Arduino
  • Controller – Arduino Uno R3 purchased from adafruit.com
  • Speakers – Sound bar purchased from staples
  • Lunch Box – Purchased on EBAY.  The lunch box holds all of the electronics and the sound bar.  A small LED was added to the lunch box where the ET finger is.  A 10mm LED was also added to ET’s finger in the NECA puppet.  A motion sensor was added to the lunch box in the top left corner and each motion trigger will play 1 of 7 different phrases.  The heart, finger lights, and audio are all programmed via the Arduino.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
