Animated Wheatley from Portal 2 #CircuitPython #Gaming #Robotics #NeoPixels #Cosplay

Via the Adafruit Forums and the Norwood Cosplay blog comes a detailed recreation of Wheatley from Portal 2.

Over the past 2 years I have been working to complete a animated Wheatley from Portal-II along with a Portal Gun. Wheatley is animated via a Raspberry Pi, Servo Hat and speaks with the help of the 20watt amp. His eye is made up of 76 neo-pixels controlled via of a fadecandy board. (10 servos control movement). Of course there are also UBEC’s and other components to make everything work as well.

Inside the Portal Gun is a Rasp-Pi Zero, Arcade hat, PowerBost 1000, and operator display using a 128X64 OLED. The animation sequences are selected on the Portal Gun and then communicated to Wheatley via Bluetooth.

The software is all Python-3 making use of many of the Adafruit libraries.

Wheatley would not have been possible without your prompt customer service and support combined with an every growing catalog of electronics.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
