Star Wars Rogue One K2SO Robotic Head Build #3DPrinting #CircuitPlaygroundExpress #RogueOne #Adafruit #NeoPixels @pvonelling
A neat project by Peter von Elling on Twitter and Thingiverse: an automated K2SO robotic head.
(I) used some NeoPixels and a couple custom parts inside the eyes. Currently hooked up to an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express to make it “sleep,” blink, and get angry at loud noises (eyes turn red). Made the connector so I can use any development board. One day I might have him speak!
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.
