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.
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.
