These Goggles Blink Like a Camera Iris, Too Cool! #3DThursday #3DPrinting

LoboCNC shared this project on Thingiverse!

These blinking goggles use a remix of my Print-In-Place Iris Box (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1817180) which is a remix of emmett’s Preassembled Iris Box (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1811143). Right and left “eyeballs” snap into the goggles and a 3D printed spring holds them open. A discrete piece of fishing line is used to actuate the blink. Or you can also skip the spring and the fishing line and just reach up and operate each iris manually. Optionally, you can add “lenses” to enhance the look.

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!
