After seeing Alonso Martinez’s Mira robot on You-Tube, I had to have one but couldn’t find it anywhere. So, I designed my own version of it and will be uploading STLs and make the software that I’ve written for it available either here or github.
In a nutshell, it is two concentric shells with 3 servos to control x, y and z axis. It runs on a raspberry pi zero w, a pi camera and a PWM board from Adafruit. Internal parts are held in place without screws; just 3D printed blocks and 1/4″, strong magnets.
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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
