Robotic eyebrows

Posted on Thursday, August 4th, 2011 in PIC, robotics by the machinegeek


Chris from PyroElectro sends this link to his simple animatronic project using a PIC 18F452:

This project serves as an introduction into animatronics by using some off-the-shelf hobby servos as actuators to move a pair of eyebrows on a dummy face. The project shows animatronics newbies how even a pair of eyebrows with limited movement have a strong power to display emotions.

    That’s awesome! Love the way the emotionally neutral mouth and eyes ‘fit’ into the emotion generated by eyebrows.
