The iconic eye of HAL 9000 from 2001: a Space Odyssey remains a highly popular prop that devoted film fans may seek out for their personal collections. This guide demonstrates how to turn out a low-cost, highly accurate facsimile in a weekend for just a fraction of the cost of an official licensed reproduction.
This updated guide now includes instructions on how to update HAL 9000 with CRICKIT, Adafruit’s Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit.
You can load up HAL with quotes from the film, or feed him other WAV files to play. Learn how to create your own 9000 series robotic assistant on the Adafruit Learn System!
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.
