More Ready-Made Designs for Adafruit Animated Eyes
Developing new eye designs for our Teensy-animated eyes project is a bit of an undertaking, involving an odd assortment of image filters and conversion code. Fortunately, Adafruit Forums participant merlins_ghost has you covered, with a bundle of new eye designs that plug easily into the existing eye code…there’s HAL 9000, a lamprey eye and a nifty camera aperture effect, among others. If you’re making one of our eye projects (like the bowler hat or purple people eater doorbell) or creating your own, it’s definitely worth checking out for more variety!
