Doesn't the picture at the bottom of the home page have a "play" button in the lower left corner. It plays fine for me.

Re: Motion sensor?

Sorry I missed that.  The motion sensor is a Parallax PIR Motioon Sensor. It can be found at this link http://www.robotshop.com/en/parallax-pir-motion-sensor.html  

I have another project that does have it's eyes move, on YouTube. This particular project did not ask for the eyes to move and I didn't have the budget to add the feature (it was done on commission for an LA artist).

Motion sensor?

What motion sensor are you using? I don't see it specified in the BOM or the text. Otherwise, the project looks pretty well documented. As someone else said, it would be a lot cooler to have the eyes move as well.

The technology is changing day by day. I think once we can do everything with the help of technology. I find some valuable information from this article.

Spooky eyes

I've seen several examples of eyes iike this where the pupils are following you as you move around in front of them -- it is genuinely spooky!  Even spookier when you try to trick it by having two people in front of it and one eye follows each one!

Engineering open houses at universities are fun places to visit!

Eyes Rotation

You should have added the eyes rotation feature even if it was not requested, as it would add more details and beauty to your product. It would not take much time as you already stated, but would increase the value of your product significantly. More over the video was too short to comprehend. However the blinking feature looks nice.

I wasn't able to watch them in motion. Is it just me? I really wanted to see them in action.

Latest Analysis
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
