Members Event: Arduino Animatronic Eye Masterclass
Thursday 02 October 2014 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Institute of Making
Booking opens on Friday 19th Sep, at 1pm.
Animate your latex eye so that its gaze follows you around the room with animatronics master Matthew Walker.
The afternoon workshop lasts for approximately three hours and follows on from making a latex eye mechanism in a previous session. You will need to bring along your latex eye made in a previous session.
You will connect your eye mechanism to servo motors, a sensor and an Arduino board and write a program to move the eye when the sensor detects movement.
You will need to bring a Windows laptop or a Macbook and you will learn how to set up the Arduino programming environment and write code if you haven’t done this before.
