After a lot of work tuning the firmware and building a site for it, we’re finally ready to sell our first product: EerieEyes.
EerieEyes is a fairly simple circuit that, when turned on and put in the dark provides an eerie pair of eyes staring out from the darkness. We’re certainly not the first people to have this idea, but we’re pretty sure that we’re the first to build one on an AVR, and offer it up open source/open hardware.
We hope to be able to expand the firmware available here. Right now, EerieEyes blinks, and if you connect a Peizo or Vibrating motor up to the extension pads, it’ll buzz. There’s an ISP header available for onboard programming, and it also provides a breakout for all 5 GPIO pins.

So you’ve got your EerieEyes Kit and you want to assemble it! You’ve come to the right place. Following are the instructions.
The kit you received may say “ScaryEyes” on it, instead of EerieEyes. This was our first go at a kit, and as a result we had a few errors. Rather than be wasteful, we decided to let it slide and try to make the best of it. The instructions are the same.
