Halloween Animatronics

Let's Take a look at Animatronic Face Design
selected information from Halloween Animatronics Volume 1 Animatronic Face.

Section Seven: the animatronic Face . Ok, an animatronic neck looks like a stump unless it has a head attached. Hmm, maybe an animatronic stump would be cool… 3 Degrees of freedom .. Headless …Hmmm… Anyway, In this section you will see how to build the moving jaw, eyes that look left and right and eyelids that blink. Once you understand how to manipulate these areas, The sky is the limit. Think about moving eyebrows, ears, whatever floats your boat. Then Attach the Face to the neck and you have a very good start to
Since the eye mechanism is the most complicated part of the face, we cover that first. From selecting your materials to building the eye mechanism, we've got you covered. These mechanims are AWESOME and your animatronics will take a giant leap forward once your props are looking around and blinking!
This section is highly detailed and you will come away with the most efficient way to build it. Now these eyes are going to have 2 degrees of freedom, LEFT to RIGHT movement as well as BLINKING.
Yep there's a lot of pieces to make, but you will not be disappointed and you will be able to build your own eye mechanics for your Halloween animatronics. We show you how to do everything, nothing held back!
If you're interested in making your own parts out of styrene plastic. We've got you covered by showing you how to do it, what to build and how simple it can be. IN FACT I use the parts we make right then and there so YES ! You see it all! These babys are hot off the presses (er.. vacuum forming table) and ready to become EYELIDS for one of the animatronic faces.
Here I'm testing the eyes LEFT TO RIGHT as well as the eyelid motion. Once the testing is done, and center postion is found
(you want your prop to look straight ahead don't you?) Well maybe you don't. That would be interesting. Anyway, once thats done we'll finish the eyes and move on.
Once the mechansims are in place and working good. I show the servo positioning for all the motions we're going to create. Once again, the procedure is easy to modify for your own ideas.
All of my animatronic designs use the same basic (read that - TIME TESTED) mechanics. And you will learn all of them from Halloween Animatronics VOLUME 1.
