Here's a test of two of the axis. Rotation is next. Tom will actually be attached on a pipe 8" above the table surface.

One question, how do you keep the head from flying off? ;)

Lol, nothing yet. Tape I guess. I'd hate to have to glue it.

Rotation has been finished.

Thanks! I need to attach Tom Servo to the platform. Now it's like he's riding a mechanical bull.

Ron, what does "+1" mean?

It's the "like" for the new Google+ social networking site... but everyone has used it as a "sign of approval" since forever ago ;)

Lol, sorry. I'm old.

I've got Tom's mouth servo added. The servo is mounted to the controll rod in the hoverskirt and will rotate with Tom's head.

Wow, no way! His mouth moves too?! This is incredible.

Thanks Derek. His mouth is synced to the audio. The software converts the audio wave form into servo instructions. I was too lazy to edit out Crow's and Mike's parts. For this test anyway, lol.

Hands down, that has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen in my entire life.

Here's Crow's three axis platform. Now I get to automate Crows neck, mouth and eyes. Something I've been procrastinating...

That's going to be a challenge.

I have it drawn out, and it *should* work, lol.

I have the lower half of Crow mounted to the platform with the head servo in place.

This is so awesome. This is the kind of project I think most of us here would do if we could.
But, I just can't help wondering if "irony' is the way to describe a servo controlled Crow...

Lol I thought that too.

Here's where it is today.

Yeah me too! It's all finished an put back together.
I have to set limits on all the servos in the control software and I'll try it out. Tomorrow, lol.
