HackSpace Magazine Issue 35 – MONSTER M4SK #CircuitPython @HackSpaceMag @Adafruit

HackSpace magazine issue 35 takes a look at adding uncanny eyes to your Halloween project with the Adafruit MONSTER M4SK.

Animated eyes – aka uncanny eyes – have been around in the maker world for a while. Phil Burgess first created the code for the Teensy microcontrollers in 2015… Adafruit supports it on a number of its boards… We’ve used the Adafruit MONSTER M4SK, which features a SAMD51 microcontroller and two 240 × 240 screens.

It’s possible to get some really creepy, realistic, or just plain fun eyes. We strongly recommend having a play with all of the examples and mashing them up. Eyes have a strange psychological impact on us, and it can be a little hard to understand how changing some values will affect how the eyes make you feel until you’ve seen them.
