Stephanie – Robot Face Prototype

Posted May 3, 2014 by Chris

"I wanted to go for a mad science robot look. I really liked pictures of robot face prototypes with electronics sort of bursting from the back. I envisioned control wires coming out from behind a mask and running all around the room to control various things, looking like hair, or veins, or roots, depending on which analogy you wish to use. The face was easy enough to procure; Hobby Lobby sells basic androgenous masks. I also wanted a few animatronic features, like a moving mouth. For this, I took a geared DC motor out of a Billy Bass singing fish."
