Robotics, Circuits, Mechanics, Servo Motors, Controls and
Have you ever went to Disneyland, Universal
Studios, Chucky Cheese's or an amusement park and wondered how
they make the animated characters? Have you ever thought it
would be fun to build something if you know how, but you don't know
where to start? Well, I have! For many years I have
wanted to get stated with animatronics. Yet before the advent
of the Internet finding information wasn't easy. Not only
that, there wasn't much in the way of building components.
In my quest to build an animated character or
android, I've noticed that there is only bits and pieces of
information here or there. For instance, what kind of
device would be the best to use for mouth movement? A stepper
motor? A servo motor? A air cylinder? A solenoid?
And once that problem is solved, what would
be the best way to synchronize a voice with mouth movement?
These and many other questions are the focus of this website.
I should mention that this website is a continuous evolving process.
Many questions I don't know the answers to myself but I certainly
plan an publishing the answers once I find them.
android, robotic project.
