Here is one that I’ve been working on, it contains an 8mhz Trinket, 2x neopixel jewels and a bit of silicon wire.
The neck is hard drive platters, the sides are drive heads, and the top the motors. A little tubing helps even out the Giger-esq look. The skull is a candy dish from Amazon, and the “plate” is just a cut-up aluminum sign (cheap way to get thin aluminum sheets).
I’m still thinking of what to do with the base (from an old barcode scanner), but I might just cover it with fabric. I’m also working on what I want the eyes to “do”, but I omitted any sort of sensors as another box will most likely contain an AudioFX board and PIR sensor. My buddy said I should use a sonic sensor and have the eyes glow brighter as a subject approaches…maybe I need to build another.
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.
