Here I will show you an overview on how to make a robotic talking turret, loosely based off of the turrets from the popular game, Portal. This instruc...
A "smart" animatronics project needs a brain - in this case, a programmable microcontroller. I will be using a Roboduino, a modification of the popula...
Sound is a very important factor of an animatronics project - however, it is usually very difficult to implement with microcontrollers. So far I have...
LED lights are cheap and easy to use - and if used in the right way, can add to the asthetics of a project tremendously. I would reccomend going to e...

I used a cheap wal-mart airsoft gun. It is an AEG (automatic electric gun), so all that is needed to fire it is to put power through the motor.Before ...
Not sure how to put it, but I just built the turret. Saw the plastic, drill holes, bolt it together.
Attached is the Arduino program for the demo video shown: Note that you will need the SoftwareServo library and the Wave shield library.
The turret needs some kind of brains to identify targets - in this case, a scanning rangefinder.I used the Stampy method in the link belowhttp://www.s...
Now for the green part: solar charged batteries! I opened up one of those solar-outdoor light things and found a simple circuit and 3 AA batteries in...
There you have it, an overview on how to make a great animatronics project (in my case, a turret.). Have fun!
