NEW GUIDE: John Park’s All-Seeing Skull @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #halloween
When it comes to decorating for Halloween, or setting up an elaborate, Scooby Doo-esque plot to scare a bunch of meddling kids, it’s hard to beat a creepy skull that looks at you out of one eye whenever it detects movement!
You can build this with the HalloWing and its TFT display, a lens, and a PIR sensor to determine when people are approaching, and then open up it’s one good eye to stare them down! All built into a cheap prop skull from the hardware store.
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.
