Oh My Glob, It’s Time to Build Your Own BMO

It’s impossible to choose a favorite character on Adventure Time, but BMO is near the top of my list. The little living video game console brings the cute, but he’s also a loyal friend who bails Finn and Jake out of trouble. In short, he’s exactly the kind of companion you want to have around, and if you have skills with a RaspberryPi computer and can cut medium-density fibreboard (MDF), then you’re well on your way to making a new friend.

The folks behind BYO BMO have documented their process for making a version of the character that has animated facial expressions, speaks, and displays video. They go into details so you can take their knowledge and construct a BMO of your very own. I want to make one to sit on my desk and keep me company.

See the DIY BMO in action in the following video:

    Stealthnull! You pointed out something that pretty much every adult viewer of the show (I’m willing to bet that includes the author of this post) is already aware of! Astute viewers will also note that Jake and Finn constantly refer to BMO as a “him.”

    So Congratulations! You’re comment is both needless and sorta condescending!

    BMO isn’t a guy…BMO is genderless.
