NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Animatronic Hand @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Build a cardboard animatronic hand with independent finger control using CRICKIT robotics controller board! This new Learn Guide from John Park will show you how. Make it with cardboard, straws, string, and rubber bands.
Use the CRICKIT board with your Circuit Playground Express to control a cardboard animatroinc hand. Four servo motors pull the fingers into position using cable drive systems made from cord and straw guides. Program it all with CircuitPython to actuate as you press the capacitive touch controllers.
You’ll also learn to use the CRICKIT as an audio-animatronic controller with pre-programmed sounds and motions, such as counting in binary!
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.
