Robot Roundup: Robotic Owls

Out of the whole “robotic kingdom”, robotic owls are near the top of the cute and usefulness pyramid. Every since seeing Bubo in Clash of the Titans, we were hooked.

So when we saw Alex Glow’s recent Archimedes the owl (center below), it was instant wow factor.

What other mechano-owls have come this way? I went to find out:

How hard is it to make your own animated owl robot? Actually, it’s pretty easy. Adafruit’s own John Park has created a robotic version of Minerva, the Adafruit Circuit Playground character owl (see in the Youtube video at the top of the article)! You can build your own!

You can find the whole build guide, with step by step instructions and code, in the Adafruit Learning System.
