“Stray” droid with a Raspberry Pi 3A+ #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Redditor u/illicitpugs created this emotive display based on the game Stray. You can tell from their desktop that illicitpugs already has an eye for classic Macintosh, side by side the droid similarity is undeniable.

They crafted a cute Pi case with an LCD screen that you can cycle through emotions. Some quality details and Adafruit gear baked in as well! From Reddit:

I modelled the head in fusion 360 based on some reference screenshots and printed the parts on my 3D printer, the dimensions being defined by the screen I wanted to use. It’s not 100% accurate but I’m happy with how it turned out.

The little knob on the bottom right lets me choose between a facial expressions (I grabbed these from the game itself) and pressing it lets me choose between different colour schemes.

The interface is built as a nodeJS app that is set to full screen via chromes kiosk mode. (the sprites are animated I’ll post a gif soon). The electronics running the show are a Raspberry Pi 3A+, a Pimoroni HyperPixel Square LCD and and Adafruit i2c rotary encoder board.
