    Cool June Make & Take - Simple Animatronics Redux

    I'm creating a thread for this event. (I can't seem to find one if it exists)



    June Make & Take - Simple Animatronics Redux

    On Sunday, July 8, Crawford is back with his popular two-axis "nod and turn" head make and take. Using gear motors and a simple PVC frame assembly, this mechanism creates the appearance of semi-random head motion for a monster, witch, zombie, or any other life-sized prop.

    Materials will be provided for those who RSVP, but some simple drilling, cutting, and wiring is required. Cost is $20. See you there!

    Calm? Do "murder" and "calm" go together? Calm and murder?

    Sorry, HeatSync suddenly announced on Wednesday, June 20 that they would be packing up and moving the weekend of June 23-24.
    This means we will not have access to the lab or to tools to do the build.
    We are looking at July 8 and July 29 as alternates.
    Anyone have a preference?

    I can't be at the animatronic M&T but is there any chance of video recording this for distribution? I would really like to see this presentation.
