I had a lot of fun filming the making of this project. I think this could make a really interesting stop-motion animation. The segments in the limbs are pretty adjustable and have a tight tolerance. I was able to rest a fidget spinner over one of the claws and it stayed in place – How cool is that?!

I'd love to see your build, if your make one, please share it with me! You can post a make on the thingiverse page or just tag @adafruit or @ecken on instagram or twitter.

Project Concepts

I think these components and code can be adapted for lots of other projects. It's basically some randomly rotating thing with blinking lights. I can imagine this could be useful for cosplay props, weapons and simple animatronics. The circuit can easily be upgraded to feature USB battery recharging with a Trinket Lipo Backpack breakout.
