ARVIS is a Steampunk robot that was built to showcase many of the designs I use to build my characters. He is a portable and fully functioning so that he is able to be transported to conventions to assist me in teaching my Animatronics classes. He incorporates a wide variety of the products and techniques I utilize on a regular basis.
I did add a switch but used a vintage knife switch to fit the Steampunk design. I love this effect and use it with many of my animatronic characters. I also promote in my articles for Servo Magazine and will include it in a class I am teaching in March at the big Transworld Halloween and Attraction Show. Thanks again for all the cool products and tutorials!
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.
