This might not be the most useful project of all time except for the creator of it (who plans on using it to make a short film) but it’s definitely one of the most fun. Randy Sarafan made this Animatronic Talking Takeout Container quite simply using an arduino and a servo motor. Of course there’s also the ever important takeout container, googly eyes, and fake food. Quick video explains it:
That’s just the basic idea, there’s so much you can do based on that. Maybe add a motion sensor or light sensor so it automatically starts talking when you open the fridge door. Either scare the pants off someone or just keep you on your diet (maybe with a timer so it only goes off for late night snacks). Kids will love it. Or make your own movie just like Randy plans on doing.
