ClearCrawler Strandbeest Electronics and Head Installation

Adding a head and remote control electronics to the ClearCrawler Strandbeest. Eyes are 8×8 red LED matrices, head turns on a pan/tilt assembly, and it walks on differentially controlled legs (like a tank). NRF24L01 units used for Tx and Rx, along with a motor driver board, Arduino Nano on the ‘bot, and an Arduino Uno used as a transmitter.

As seen at the Hackaday Superconference and two Maker Faires – even winning a ribbon at one!
