Hi @Nomad,

I'm not sure how those eyes communicate but since it's 3 wire I'm assuming likely a serial protocol. The RGB control in ARC wouldn't work with these Eyes since it communicates with 4 wire I2C.

That being said, maybe some one out there has reverse-engineered the protocol for these eyes and you could possibly use an EZ-B digital port to control the eyes.

Those are definitely serial (uart) and would be easy to control by the ezb. The only thing you’d need is the communication protocol.

This might be a weird non standard serial comm. I looked at this dudes arduino library and he’s not using a standard serial library. I’m guessing it’s some weird custom thing. You could get a small cheap arduino and use his library to act as a middle man between the ezb and Meccano devices.

Here’s his library: https://github.com/MrDreamBot/MeccaChannel
