Over the last few weeks, we have shown you 3D printed parts, the joystick, design plans, and the electronics, but one thing we haven’t had a chance to show you is an assembled prototype of the LipSync itself — you’ve seen the parts, but not the whole. Well, here’s a look.

August 11, 2016 LipSync Update: Bluetooth

We needed a way to make the LipSync be able to connect to your phone wirelessly.
