A Kit to make a skeleton Tentacle controlled by a Raspberry PI (Not included). The tentacle will bend in two directions (2 degrees of freedom), controlled by the servos and raspberry PI. The demo code is written in Python or C using the WiringPi library, although any GPIO capable language for the Raspberry PI will do. If you want you can cover your tentacle with a more realistic covering, ideal for a spooky project or steampunk event.
The Kit comprises of the acrylic pieces to make your tentacle, 2 PWM servos, a Raspberry Pi Interface, a plastic covered spring and nylon control wires.
Some gluing is required, and although we recommend super-glue, other (more kid friendly) contact adhesives will work OK.
Please Note: No glue or Raspberry PI’s are supplied with this kit.
