Wheatley .... Thanks

Post by nl28382 »

I just wanted to drop everyone at Adafruit a thank you note. Over the past 2 years I have been working to complete a animated Wheatley from Portal-II along with a Portal Gun. Wheatley is animated via a Raspberry Pi, Servo Hat and speaks with the help of the 20watt amp. His eye is made up of 76 neo-pixels controlled via of a fadecandy board. (10 servos control movement). Of course there are also UBEC's and other components to make everything work as well.

Inside the Portal Gun is a Rasp-Pi Zero, Arcade hat, PowerBost 1000, and operator display using a 128X64 OLED. The animation sequences are selected on the Portal Gun and then communicated to Wheatley via Bluetooth.

The software is all Python-3 making use of many of the Adafruit libraries.

Wheatley would not have been possible without your prompt customer service and support combined with an every growing catalog of electronics.
