Geek love: Valentine’s Day robot

Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2013 in Arduino, Holiday, LEDs by the machinegeek


Clint Stevenson and his son built this animatronic robot head for his Valentine’s Day treat box for school and wrote up the build on the Casco Logix blog. He relates, “The blog post doesn’t talk about or show the body of the robot, just the head. But my son and I are pretty excited for him to take it to school when his 1st grade class shares their Valentine’s Day treats.” The project uses spare household items for the housing, and the electronics consists of an Arduino, servo, resistors, LEDs and button switch. You can find the Arduino code in Clint’s post.

Ok, geeks. If you don’t know what to buy for that special lady, why not build her a robotic Valentine head? What’s not to love?
