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!


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.

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

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