Servos are surprisingly easy to use. Even more so than simple DC motors and steppers when you have a microcontroller. In this instructable we'll use a 'duino to drive five servos which will control a doll's limbs and neck.
I bought the servos at HobbyPartz
for a couple bucks apiece and found the doll at a swap meet for a dollar. The doll says 1967 Mattel
on the back and I later learned she is a See 'n Say
type doll. The hard plastic body was important for a successful installation.
