Purple People Eater Doorbell

3D model description

This cute and creepy halloween project is a collaboration with Phil B. It uses the Teensy micro-controller, AND a TFT display inside of 3D printed parts to make an Animatronic Eye Doorbell.

Inspired by Sheb Wooley's 1958 hit novelty song, we present our one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater… Like the bowler hat project, this one uses a single eye, making it more affordable and easier to build than its two-eyed brethren. It can also be installed as a functional doorbell, perfect for Halloween!
