I’m going to take a jumping spider prop that I bought a while ago and tear it down so i can upgrade it to work better in my haunted house.
Props like these good for scaring trick or treaters, and party guests, but don’t work that well in a haunted attraction. So I bought a Trinket M0 micro-controller from adafruit.com to use as a new brain for this jumping spider.
This video is just the tear down of the prop. I’ll post the video about connecting and programming the Trinket M0 soon.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
