BearDuino: Hacking Teddy Ruxpin with Arduino

There was a smaller version of T, E.D. on display at MakerFaire. But Hathaway wanted to do more than just show the installation—after all, this was MakerFaire. And as it turns out, in the process of sourcing the bears for the original installation, he picked up a substantial number of spares. So he decided to extend the life of the project by giving the bears away as BearDuinos and by publishing open-source code to make them come to life.

And that’s how a gutted Teddy Ruxpin in a Ziploc plastic bag came into my possession—and my personal dive into Arduino finally got rolling.
