Animatronics Experimenter's Kit

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Aaron Fecther, creator of Showbiz Pizza's Rockafire Explosion, sells a kit for making a talking head animatronic robot. In this example he uses an air compressor, a light switch and a cassette deck to control the performance - exactly the same technology he used in the 1970s. A lot of people in the YouTube comments ask about using computers or MIDI, and I'm sure this is possible as well.

You can buy the kits from http://www.aaronskit.com
