Give your next animatronic or robotic project the gift of eyes with this Snake Eyes Bonnet Pack for Raspberry Pi. The Snake Eyes bonnet is an accessory for driving TFT LCD displays, and it also provides four analog inputs for sensors. It’s perfect for making cosplay masks, props, spooky sculptures for halloween, animatronics, robots…anything where you want to add a pair of animated eyes!
We recently added some very fancy 1.54″ TFT displays with high density 240×240 resolution and IPS full angle viewing. Basically, they’ve got the image quality of an OLED, but the pricing of a TFT – and 4x the pixels of either! Perfect for dazzlingly good looking eyes. What’s not to love?
We really really recommend only pairing this with a Raspberry Pi 3. These high-density displays have a lot of pixels to push around and the quad-core Pi 3 will help keep the frame rate high and flicker-free. You can use a 3 Model B or 3 B+.
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.
