The maniac over at LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER has given his bandmate a face. An animatronic face for a modular synth.
Built using cheap…servo’s a teensy 3.2 microchip, some ping pong balls and chattering teeth form the joke shop. it was surprisingly simple to build as the rest of it was made from scrap sitting around, (blocks of plywood, bendy plastic and strips of metal). With a bit of effort and thought, it wouldn’t be hard to replicate for under 40 quid. Looks like the #furby organs mumma furby

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.
