I’m building an animatronic worm, he sings, blinks and moves his eye brows so i need 3 servos, i’m completely new to the animatronic side of things, usually i’m a sculptor and molder, but i wanted to learn a bit more about this side of things, the puppet is for my own pleasure, i hope to take him on the street when he’s finished ! So i need 3 servos but i wanted to see if anyone can help me with how to power the servos.
The puppet is operated by 2 joysticks that move the head and body, the puppet is sat on top of a trash bin so all the servos will be hidden in there. I want to put a button on the top of each joystick that will move the mouth and brows when i press them, so a remote control button device that will activate the servos, what remote control button activated power packs are there out there that will do this ?
I also want a power pack that will activate the servo for the eye blinks on a timed interval out of my control, just so it goes off every 7 secs or so.
Have a look at my pictures of the puppet and controls (this is the mock up) , any advice that could be given would be greatly appreciated.
p.s. the worm is called Aylmer and is from an old b movie called brain damage, heres a link to a clip if you haven’t seen it !
