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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
