Combine the potent PJRC Teensy 3.1 microcontroller with one or two Adafruit OLED or TFT displays to create graphical animated eyes as a silent alternative to animatronics. They move! They blink! They react to light!
This is an evolution of an earlier project — Animating Multiple LED Backpacks — which have found their way into many Halloween pumpkins and skulls and costumes. These next-gen eyes add a disturbing level of realism!
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.
