NEW GUIDE: Crickit Controlled Animatronic Eyeball @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

Build your own animatronic eyeball using Crickit , Circuit Playground Express, a ping pong ball, two servos, and some cardboard! This new guide shows you how.

With this simple hierarchy of ping pong ball -> micro servo -> bracket -> full servo, you’ll create a two-axis gimbal that allows the eye to look in any direction!

You’ll program it with MakeCode’s simple-to-use graphical interface so that it glances around, or even puppeteer it using the accelerometer tilt built into the board!

    The link to the guide is broken. It should be:

  2. @Doug: Thanks for the catch – just changed it!
