"Who wants to play video games?" - The cutest character to ever exist
Raspberry Pi/Touch Screen Compatibility
The three major components required to make this BMO work are a Raspberry Pi (I used a 4), this display from Amazon (Has touch screen functionality if you want it), and this HDMI L Adapter that is required to be able to connect the screen to the Pi in the tight confines of the BMO casing. The display comes with a 5V cable that can connect it to the Pi's 5V pin for power (with a male/female cable extensions), this means only the Pi power cable is required.
All electronics as well as the back plate are designed to be fastened with M3 bolts.
Power Cable and GPIO Opening
There is an opening for the power cable as well as male/female GPIO cable extensions.
Included, is a stencil that centers itself on the case so that you can paint "BMO" on the case.
No Supports Needed, Two Piece Design
No Supports are necessary on any piece of this model. The case itself prints in two large parts.
After prototyping, this is a relatively quick, fun build. For BMO's face I just set the desktop background of my Pi to BMO and removed all Icons and the task bar.
This BMO uses the same raspberry pi that holds all my functionalities for DIY Hue sync and Audio Sync as well as general LED Control of my entire room.
I'm hoping to later incorporate some code I've been testing for a voice activation function as well some feedback in the form of fun BMO soundbites.
If you are looking to create you own models like this one feel free to checkout all of my tutorials on 3D modeling and prop making techniques.
If you are looking to purchase the model so that you can print your own you can find it in the store.
