New Guide: Eye of Newt #ElectronicHalloween Project
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing,–
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
This guide is based on the Uncanny Eyes project by Phil Burgess, with a Halloween-y twist. We’ll build an electronic eye as compact and small as possible. Put it in a wide-mouthed jar and add it to your potion shelf, or attach a leather thong to wear it like a pendant around your neck.
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.
