Overview

In this project we'll build a set of Antenna Eyes! 

The Monster M4sk features a pair of realistic animated eyes on two LCD screens.  

We can separate the two eyes and mount them on a headband to create these alien inspired antenna eyes! 

The eyes are enclosed in a 3D Printed case and attach to springs on a headband. The springs allow them to sway, giving them a bit on movement to add a bit of life to the antennae!

Splittable 

The Monster M4sk features a splittable design! This allows you to cut along the perforations on the PBC to separate the two eyes. the Two boards are then connected via a JST SH 9-Pin cable.

We can even create a longer wire to increase the distance even further like we did with the longer antenna eyes! 

Adafruit Monster M4SK

The Adafruit monster Mask packs a ton of awesome stuff into one single board. It’s running a cortex M4, it’s got 8 megabytes of flash storage, USB charging and 2x IPS TFT displays. It also has buttons, light sensor, expansion ports and accelerometer. 

Be sure to check out the quick start guide for the full run down on code and graphics setup.
