Open source robotics kits
This is a complete kit for making an animatronic creature head. The eyes move in 2 dimensions (side to side, and up and down) and the jaw opens and closes. The kit includes the laser cut parts, 3d printed parts, servos, NodeMCU, breakout board, and Wii controller, nuts and bolts and a battery pack.
The instructions are digital and can be found here: https://hackaday.io/project/16193-open-animatronics/log/50974-assembling-a-head-from-the-printed-and-laser-cut-part
I have always been interested in animatronics since I was a kid. This Halloween i decided to use my engineering degree, my new robotics software BowlerStudio, and my passion for making creatures, to make Open Animatronics. It is a framework for making parametric animatronic creatures of a whole bunch of varieties.
The design of this animatronic head is not the only design availible. BowlerStudio provides users with the ability to run and modify the parametrics themselves. If you have a laser cutter, you can make a whole bunch of different heads and bolt the parts on to them.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I am a roboticist and the lab manage for the Robotics Engineering lab at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I design open source software with the intention of making the process of building robotics easier than ever before. The robots I sell here are all designed in BowlerStudio, and all are parametric and open source.
