My first project is a wee bit useless 😆
Actually nice! :)
Thank you :D
@TheLogan I actually think it is a cool project. Would you mind sharing some more details about the used hardware, software, and maybe the wiring?
Thank you, certainly I will.
The following image is the "guts" of the project
It's rather simple really, 2 MG90S tower servos are driven directly off a pico board, and powered with a 9V rechargeable battery. The battery can either power both servos and the Pico or just the servos if the Pico is connected to a PC.
Nothing is soldered as I'm still playing around with it.
The "servo arms" parts are just quick mockups that were 3D printed, they weren't perfect so I just used a lighter to reshape them a bit.
The servos are stuck on with double-sided tape, it's very much still in the prototype phase, so nothing has been soldered or in other ways permanently fixed in place xD
The code is also rather simple. I use the typescript project template that can be found here
As my base for the project, I ran into a few issues, for some reason I'm not allowed to put my files in subfolders, which is why they are all just in the root src folder, also I sometimes have to go in and change
require("somefile") to require("somefile.js"), though if I set .js as default I always have to go in and remove it from the built files (which is a bit confusing ... xD)
All of my code for the project can be found here, it too is subject to change (a lot) xD
That looks great! This is the sort of thing I'd originally developed Espruino for (not watches!) so it's really nice to see projects like this :)
Thank you, I'll share my next project soon (once it works xD ), a wearable talking hat with servo motor to move the mouth :P
This is a boutique "oddity" gift. There's a market for that....
They are rather simple to make so that may actually be an interesting idea.
are there any news (even bad news) about your talking hat ?
Well.. one piece of news is that I am really great at starting projects, many projects, even when the previous projects are not done yet, but I guess that's more of an olds than a news xD
The hat is sort of half complete, it has a mouth that can move, and a nose LED that can blink, but audio seems a really daunting task, so I ended up procrastinating with other projects xD
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
