Really fun project turns art collage into a remote-controlled theatrical extravaganza! — via AutonomousSoup
Don’t touch the Art! Everyone knows that’s the #1 rule for visiting art museums and galleries. So what do you do when you actually do want your viewers to touch the art? You make the whole thing controlled by a pair of power gloves!
To make a “power glove” controlled finger puppet theater on a hacked thrift store painting, using 4 flex sensors to control 4 servo motors, which will move 7 puppets. Add lights for added drama and intriguing aesthetics.
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.
