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!
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.
