The artist just got back to me with a video of the eyes in use on his sculpture.  Here is the link: Oops, all posts with embedded URLs are now being blocked. So go to YouTube and search for "Rock Hard by Eric Huebsch". It is the video of the rock sculpture.

As I have mentioned elsewhere, this project was done under commission and I did not have the budget for non-essential features. Design news edited the video to the bare bones. I can understand why as the actions requested were very basic.

You can search for "djsfantasi" on YouTube (and you'll have to specify the name specifically, as YouTube will return results for "dj fantasi"). There are two videos you may find of interest. Penguin Animatronic Eyes or Penguin Animatronic Head. You can also append "/watch?v=LLystzKET18" (without the quotes), to the YouTube URL to view the former video. Currently, this forum does not support linking URLs.

Animatronic Penguin in Action - 2 shows more of the creation. 

These videos were controlled from my laptop communication to a module which took serial commands and translated them into servo motions. It does this via a proprietary interpretetive language. Future plans include embedding the language on a microcontroller, so the figure becomes self-contained. Programs and speech would be stored on an SD card.

For those of you who mentioned having the eyes move, here is a link to a YouTube video of another pair of eyes that I had made. These do move side to side. http://youtu.be/LLystzKET18

Don, I write create work instructions as part of the services my company provides.  Yours for this project are outstanding.  Great job in formatting.  The projects seems to be one a univeristy student would certainly enjoy.  Excellent "Freak" example.

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.
