Poke an eye out with one of your mad scientific experiments? Harness the awesome power of thermoplastic fusion to print a microprocessor powered bionic replacement! It won’t help your vision much, but no one will doubt your mad scientist cred.
The Bionic Eye Module is a 46mm 3D-printed servo-powered mechanical eyeball module sized to fit into standard 50mm goggles. 2 sub-micro sized servos and an Adafruit Trinket create that annoying nervous tic. The whole thing is powered by a 3xAAA battery pack.
- 3D printed parts (see next page)
- 2x LS-0003 sub-micro size servos (regular ‘Micro’ servos will not work!)
- Costume Goggles
- Trinket M0 (recommended) or Trinket Mini
- 3xAAA Battery Holder with switch
- 3x AAA Batteries
- Stranded hookup wire.
- Heat Shrink Tubing
- Epoxy (‘Fast Cure’ or ‘5-Minute’ is preferred)
- Double-sided foam tape
- Paint - or permanent markers
- Plastic Glue
- Hot Glue
- 3D Printer
- Small Philips screwdriver
- Soldering iron
- Knife (e.g. X-Acto)
This advanced ocular appliance gives you a close up view of the inner workings of a 3D printed bionic eye. Of course you won't be able to see anything else out of that eye, but hey, it looks cool and that’s what counts!
Nevertheless, use caution when wearing the Bionic Eye. This costume prop will impair your depth perception and your vision in general. It is best to remove the goggles while walking around. Or wear them backwards to keep an eye on what’s behind you!
