Merry Christmas from Circuitbeard!

Published: 15 December 2015

Merry Christmas everyone! We've been busy here at CBHQ sending out lots of Petduino orders, so hopefully a fair few of you will find one in your Christmas stocking come the 25th! Now, to add a little extra Christmas cheer to your Petduino we've created a small code sample and a laser cutter design file to turn your Petduino into Rudunio, your very own digital Rudolf!

All you need to do is download this zip file and extract it's contents to an easily accessible location. Using the design template supplied, cut out a pair of reindeer antlers on a laser cutter (or you could try cutting it out of card if you don't have access to a laser cutter) and replace which ever arm or ear accessories you're currently using. Lastly, upload the Arduino sketch via the Arduino IDE to give your Petduino a suitably big red nose and a tuneful Christmas whistle.

Once done, plug in your Ruduino and prepare to annoy all your Christmas visitors by constantly playing it's tune!

Check out the video of our Ruduino Trio and get cracking on your own version. If you do create a Ruduino, don't forget to share it with us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the #petduino hashtag. And, if you don't have a Petduino, and you'd like to join in the fun, why not adopt one of your very own today? :) Our last day for shipping to UK addresses is Monday 21/12/15, and you should get it in time for Christmas providing you order before 2pm and select Royal Mail 1st Class.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year from team Circuitbeard!!
