Animatronic Eyeball

My first animatronic project. It shows how I made an eyeball that can ‘look’ around. It’s a little ruff, but I’m happy with the results. I am using 2 micro servos, Arduino Mega, rotary encoder from sparkfun, PS2 style joystick and the coolest little 132×32 pixel OLED display from Adafruit.

 

Build date: Jan 2014

I wanted to test an idea I had for how to mount the eyeball into a bracket that could be moved in any direction, and keep the servos away from the eye.
