"Magic Eight-Ball"-style Lego Darth Vader

by bithead942 on Sun Nov 30, 2014 8:20 pm

Hi, just wanted to share this project I finished recently using parts from Adafruit. I Hacked a Lego Star Wars Darth Vader minifigure clock and turned it into this Magic Eight-Ball-Style toy. After asking a Yes/No question, press his head and he will randomly speak one of 15 possible responses (actual sound clips from the Star Wars movies) that are positive, neutral, or negative. I added servos to move his arms and have him bow. By looking at the final result, you'd never know that Darth has gone through extensive surgery.

For more information about how it was made, please visit my blog:
