I want to make an animatronic head for a roughly lion-sized cat costume. Can anyone here help?
Here's the problem I'm running into. I want the eyes to be able to look in all directions (or at least 8, anyway), the ears to turn and flatten, the mouth to open and close and the lips to pull back to show the teeth and I want it to do all this without external wires or me needing to have someone controlling the face wirelessly. Is there a way to do this? I know about bend sensors and pressure sensors, but I can't seem to figure out a way to use those without the face having seizures when I'm walking in the costume. Please see the sketch I have included of the roughed out concept for the costume to see what I've got figured out so far. (yes, it is supposed to have 2 tails.) Any suggestions?
