Starting Animatronics

 Interested in Animatronics?  I always have been.

I guess the best place to start are the eyes - "the mirrors of the soul" - and the one thing that all humans look at.

There are a few videos on YouTube that go in how to make these.  I will start my design process on it. 

The challenge is having both Vertical and Horizontal movement.  The quick survey I have done suggests that for a typical animatronic, both eyes need to move the same direction and pointing.  Also, it seems to be really cool, you need eye lids.  That will add a few more servos to the mix.

more to come..
