Can Anyone Please Explain This To Me ?

I saw this video of a guy who made a metal iron man suit with pop up pieces, he said there was no programming done. I don't know how to program and i am to busy to learn but i would like to know how he did it ? I know his armor isn't to good but i want to know how he did the shoulder pieces. It says he just used motors. Please explain or give me a video or photo tutorial. Please and thank you (:

I guess he had made use of a geared electric motor so that the shaft turns slowly and he uses that to operate the shoulder flaps.

No programming needed for a geared motor, battery pack and a SPDT switch. Flip the switch one way and the motor turns clockwise. Flip the switch the other way and the motor turns counter clockwise.
