One enterprising programmer has created a Raspberry Pi script that generates random comic strip jokes. They’ve then adapted the script to print out on a tiny thermal printer and wrapped the whole thing up in a laser-cut wooden box. The result is a robot face which ‘vomits’ out the printout through its mouth! You can see details of the whole build process here and see the software, written in Processing, on Github.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
