So I made this Marisa touchscreen pet thing with monochrome graphics based on Patchcon’s Marisa sprites. Touching the screen produces a mushroom, and Marisa walks toward it. If you leave her alone long enough, she does some actions, until you create another mushroom or one appears on its own.
Here’s Marisa running on my Arduino-powered 128×64 monochrome graphical LCD screen. In related news, I’ve started a separate blog for electronics stuff which I will probably be updating more frequently. There’s lots of other neat stuff on there too.
Okay, so since the blog has been a bit empty recently, I figured I might as well post this today for added content. Yesterday in our microcontrollers class, we received our Arduinos and some other stuff, including servos (well, just one Arduino and one servo per person, I mean). We haven’t learned anything about servos yet (so far we have only covered how to make a program that makes the built-in LED blink on and off), but I am interested in this stuff so I used the internet to learn how servos work, and then made a program that allows me to spin it around by typing in things. So then I decided to put Reimu on it. And that is basically the story behind this video.
