Instructable for making your own animatronic teddy bear. You could make a cyborg version using red LED eyes that would add a creepy element to it!
With this Instructable, you will be able to make the typical teddy bear plush toy and hack it with some circuitry in order to make it “wake up” when its belly is touched. ElectroPlush uses capacitive sensing on its belly, LEDs on its eyes, servo motors in its head, and an MP3 shield for sound. It is all connected together and programmed through two Arduinos, both embedded inside the teddy bear.
