Create a Motion Tracking Face

By Andrew Gregory. Posted

Chartreuse is an interactive face that follows you when you walk by. When she sees you, her eyes turn yellow, and she gets a happy expression in her eyes. As you walk away, her eyes change to blue, and she sadly turns away.

Chartreuse is powered by an Arduino Uno, two servos, and a stepper motor and a couple of addressable LEDs. She’s constructed from a few pieces of 1/8” hardboard.

The creators, Anna Lynton and Alex Fiel, are both Technology, Arts, and Media Students at CU Boulder.
