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+.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
