We are going to have a little fun with the Intel® Galileo development board. This time around, we’ll make a simple puppet control system. We’ve put together a “running robot” marionette with a simple mechanism that uses a continuous servo. We’ll be use a touchscreen interface to control various outputs using sliders and switches.

As always, you can modify the designs to suit your needs. We will teach you how to incorporate touchscreens, and make the interface necessary for controlling the Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board.

So, let’s start the puppet show!

Here is a video of the completed project.

This tutorial was originally published on Intel Communities here.

Step 1: Needed Components

  1. Intel Galileo Gen 2
  2. Arduino Protoshield
  3. Galileo power supply
  4. Adafruit TFT touch screen
  5. LED
  6. 300 Ohm resistor
  7. Continuous servo motor
  8. Colored single core wires
<p>That's pretty cool, but I don't even want to know how much that board costs,</p>
<p>Great Idea, Great Effort and Detailed Instructable, but step 19 needs more photos to illustrate how to fix the plastic wires to control the marionette movement.<br></p>
<p>Hey, very neat instructable! Hope you don't mind me asking this, but what do you use for a white background? Keep up the great work!</p>
<p>It's a simple a big white sheet of paper!</p>
<p>Oh, thanks! I'll have to buy some over the weekend.</p>
That's great. Looks like you've been working on all these instructables for months and posted them in one go. If not then how were you able make them in so less time?
<p>You are right! They were posted weekly for 10 weeks on the intel community platform and now I'm moving them here!</p>
