Dead of the Dead Celebration
Genovians celebrated the Day of the Dead with lunch and performance from Mr. Bones! Mr. Bones is a creation from one of our Software Developers, Gerardo. He used an Arduino Board that controlled three servo motors which moved the arms and mouth. Gerardo also used an ultrasonic sensor that scans for movement. When a person was detected, it would randomly perform one of five predetermined movements and send a command to a Raspberry Pi (another controller capable to run Linux) to play a sound.
