You can 3d print this walking robot with lit eyes for very little money. It operates from a single AA battery. The robot was inspired by the 1960’s robot game made by DAISH a Argentina company. In the game the robots eyes would lit if you picked the right answer. This robot uses a low voltage / low curent Dc gear motor from SolerBotics , the GM7. And it uses the circuit board from a dollar store solar yard light to boost the 1.5 volts up to LED voltage levels. When you strip down the solar light keep the battery contacts as they will snap in to the battery holder that is printed inside the upper body part.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
