Our Friend, C.H.I.P.py Ruxpin! ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ
Yep. We went there.
Alpha C.H.I.P.s arriving means C.H.I.P. powered projects! With a love for reviving 80s animatronics, Andrew (newest member of the NTC team!) hacked the world's first animated storytelling bear with the world's first nine dollar computer.
Why make a bearmonster Frankenstein style?
Firstly, it's FUN! Secondly, it's a wonderful way to test what C.H.I.P. can do! Things like...
- Search the internet and download files
- Download, store, process, and playback files locally.
- Control the motors in a bearmonster's head in sync with audio.
C.H.I.P.py Ruxpin is just a start and we can't wait to see where our Kernel Hackers take us.
