Animatronic Eyes

An Overview Of The Animatronic Eyes
           When it comes to animatronics, build realistic eyes that move in a way similar to humans is essential. The gimbal system used here actuated by servo motors is a cheap and easy way to prototype up an animatronics system. It was reliable and as we saw in the data even perhaps a little believeable.

What To Do Now
           With the knowledge gained in this tutorial you can know build animatronic eyes! The system built here was extremely simple and leaves the door wide open for making a more complicated system to improve upon the realism. A good thing to do is take a look at other animatronic eye systems that people have built as inspiration for how to mold your own design to meet requirements. Whether you need 1 eye, 2, 3 or 4, this tutorial outlines a starting point from which you can branch out very far.

           The eyes, as creepy as they might look worked as expected and a level of realism does exist. The eyes moved up, down, left and right as outlined in the purpose and goals with different types of motion patterns. So I would say this tutorial was successful in reaching the goals laid out. However, I feel the animatron really needs a mouth to complete the face and maybe eyelids.
