Give your next animatronic or robotic project the gift of eyes with this Snake Eyes Bonnet Pack for Raspberry Pi. The Snake Eyes bonnet is an accessory for driving TFT LCD displays, and it also provides four analog inputs for sensors. It's perfect for making cosplay masks, props, spooky sculptures for halloween, animatronics, robots...anything where you want to add a pair of animated eyes!
We recently added some very fancy 1.54" TFT displays with high density 240x240 resolution and IPS full angle viewing. Basically, they've got the image quality of an OLED, but the pricing of a TFT - and 4x the pixels of either! Perfect for dazzlingly good looking eyes. What's not to love?
We really really recommend only pairing this with a Raspberry Pi 3. These high-density displays have a lot of pixels to push around and the quad-core Pi 3 will help keep the frame rate high and flicker-free. You can use a 3 Model B or 3 B+.
This pack includes:
Note: Raspberry Pi 3 is not included.
Some through hole soldering, assembly, and coding is required For all the details on how to use this Bonnet, check out the tutorial which has code, diagrams and some creative ideas for usage!
