UPDATED GUIDE: Animated Eyes on Raspberry Pi

Creepier and creepier!

Our Animated Snake Eyes Bonnet guide was originally written for a Raspberry Pi accessory we make and sell, an interface for two tiny screens and some analog controls. A new addition to the tutorial and software “untethers” this — if you don’t need the analog controls and have an HDMI display (or two), the code works fine on any Raspberry Pi computer, no Bonnet required. (See the “Using Just the Software” page.)

We’ve been having a blast with the Gakken WorldEye — a 10-inch hemispherical HDMI display from Japan. These take some work to track down…a bit spendy, must be imported, and the warranty is automatically void outside the country, so you’re SOL if it’s DOA. But the code can work equally well with any HDMI display, or a video projector…or two, with the addition of an HDMI splitter.

Halloween just keeps getting better.

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.
