Uncanny Eyes Itsy Bitsy M0 Express board

Post by SirLagsUhLot » Thu Oct 01, 2020 11:34 am

New to this arduino code thing. Having a difficult time getting the uncanny eyes to work. Only working on one eye, it is all i need for the project. Not sure I have the right libraries and which lines to enable. Only thing i get from the board is a violet light when i plug it in and occasionally when i upload the code to the board the LED flashes. I have all the wires soldered except cs2 because i don't need more than one eye. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am working on this same project. just joined because I see alot of cool things that I plan on getting involved with. I am trying to do SETS of eyes and can only get one set to work at a given time. SO there is that problem. For your issue, you should make sure to download Wermys Github code. not the std Arduino Uncanny eyes. He actually preset everything and simplified it for ItsyBitysy Express M0 and TFT screens. I can assist and would like to hear how it goes since I am tackling same project. I added mine to some old black and white pictures and cut eyes out. pretty cool. I want to add second set to one and am struggling.

Having trouble getting anything out of the tft display. The project is to show an eye when you open a small port door on a shelf. Making it look like someone is looking back at you. Have been using the github code from wermy. I keep enabling different lines of code to see if I can get it working.

Quick question are you using 5V or 3.7? Did you solder LED to vcc pin? because you should at least get the bright screen(background light) from that connection. Lastly, did you change the resistor on the tft? Just curious. because those things made a difference for me. so everytime i connect I at least get the backlight screen. I ended up nixing the second set of eyes. I tried to use ethernet cable and it would work sometimes, but only one set would generally work at a time.
