Life Sized Talking BMO From Adventure Time (that’s Also an Octoprint Server!) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
BMOctoprint is a lovely 3D printing assistant that can extoll words of affirmation. Some great attention to detail and thoughtful user interface in this project. Don’t settle for a vanilla octoprint setup.
I love using Octoprint to control my 3D printers, an open source plugin and web interface that gives incredible remote access to any 3D printer with a USB port. I also LOVE BMO from Adventure Time, the adorable little robot friend that accompanies Finn and Jake on their adventures and looks a bit like a giant Gameboy. Why not combine the two things to have a fun little robot friend who drives your 3D printer AND says nice things to you??
If your looking for smaller version of BMO the Ruiz Brothers created this guide for the cutest keychain version: 3D Printed LED-Animation BMO

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
