#AnimatronicsChallenge: a littleBits Project by lizabits

Come one, come all to witness this extraordinary, life-defying, awe-inspiring, battery-powered menagerie of animatronic creatures! From February 1-29, we challenge you to invent an electronic creature or character using littleBits, then film it in action. We want to see you design a creature that mimics life, a character that has personality. Does it flutter it’s eyelashes? Have a distinctly pitched voice? Slither in an all too real way? These aren’t your typical metallic, mechanistic robots. Friends, we want nothing short of the illusion of life.
