The open source Furby project is an open community-based project with the goal of providing a low-cost social robot platform based on the FURBY toy from Hasbro. via Open Furby
First we start to modify plastic casing of furby. It is necessary because we need some space for new OLED displays as eyes. We have to cut out the both side of furby. The holes were needed in the first version of mounting OLED displays, but we changed it, so you do not have to cut your furby so much. Next we grind the frame, which is around the LCD eyes. We also grind PCB of OLED displays.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
