2020 has been one hell of a year. Worldwide pandemic. People unable to leave their homes. Global transformation of our technologies and infrastructure, and Amazon delivery has never been busier!... Rings a bell if you're a fan of Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions 2019 'Death Stranding' for PlayStation 4. So, with the potential end of life as we know it looming in the near future, I had the idea of creating a basic, manually operated Odradek, which for those who dont know - the Odradek Terrain Scanner is a shoulder-mounted, articulated mechanical sensor that primarily serves as a multi-function scanner, able to analyze terrain as well as detect cargo tags and objects left by other players in the game. There are two types in this project - Sam's original 'Porter' scanner and Mama's BT scanner. I used Adafruit's Electroluminescent (EL) products as part of the build to add a cool lighting effect - check out this simple but effective project and keep on keeping up.
