Make an animated rabbit ear with Arduino

After only having an Arduino for just over a week, after having ard for only 1 week, "Cheeriobot" has started on a project for building an animated robot rabbit. Their first stage was creating an animated ear, and this has been quite successful. By making the ear frame from solid 14 AWG copper wire, it is strong yet lightweight. The ear can rotate over almost 180 degrees, and the top can tilt up and down, for example:

A great start to what looks to be an interesting journey in animatronics. For their plans and Arduino code, visit the project page here. And we're on twitter, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

To get started with your own Arduino-based project, consider our Freetronics Eleven - the Arduino-Uno compatible with low-profile USB socket, onboard prototyping space and easy to view LEDs:
