This project is a reuse of the project built in the Circuit Playground Express Perk-up Ears guide. It’s a good example of how you can find new and interesting ways to reuse or extend an cool bit of hardware.

So if you built the perk-up ears headband from that guide, charge up the battery, and plug in the USB cable. Otherwise, work thought that guide to build the servo-ears headband.
