This goes under the heading of "Inspiration is where you find it."
We were walking down a side street and happened to pass a golf shop. Normally we wouldn't have given it a second, or even first glance. We have less than zero interest in the game of gold.
But this time, for some completely unknown reason, the window display caught and held our attention.
There in the window was a large set of golf club protectors wearing very, very familiar faces. They were just crying out to be liberated and hacked.
The prices weren't bad either, a little over $25 each on sale. Add a simple frame, some linkages and servos, plus a controller board, and in pretty short order we would have a delightful animated Popeye, Bluto, or any one of a dozen other characters.
