@Duane: ...Pixy tracking-camera device a while back. My first thought was that you had gotten some more of those.

We're obviously thinking alike -- if I can get my Pixy to recognize my finger, it should be able to work out angle and proximity -- that' son my list after I get the eyelids blinking ....

Max - You sent me that Pixy tracking-camera device a while back. My first thought was that you had gotten some more of those.

I'd like to have the avatar camera and face display be able to track my movements. The Pixy will track for small movements. Larger movements will require the robot to actually move or rotate. By just having the camera and display move for smaller movements, I'll save a lot of battery power.

@Duane: You had me fooled.

There are some amazing animatronic eyes out there -- are you thinking about using something like thsi on your robit avatar?

Re: When are you going to play with real servos?

@TonyTim: I have 6 brushless servo controllers (plus 2 VFDs and a stepper controller) sitting on my desk, along with 7 brushless DC servo motors from NEMA17 to NEMA34 in size (including a very tasty direct drive rotary table), a stepper motor, and a AC induction motor.

Wowsers! I just wish I had the time to play with them some more. Also, it would be great to have someone who knew all this stuff to hang out with. It would be great to work on animatronics for fimns and suchlike.

Sometime you should learn about brush or brushless DC servo motors with feedback (encoder, resolver, etc) -- OK, they might be overkill for the eyes, but they're a lot of fun, and can do so much more.


P.S. I'm probaby a little biased, as I have 6 brushless servo controllers (plus 2 VFDs and a stepper controller) sitting on my desk, along with 7 brushless DC servo motors from NEMA17 to NEMA34 in size (including a very tasty direct drive rotary table), a stepper motor, and a AC induction motor.

@max: "cartoon-like eyelashes" Shades of Betty Boop! It could be the "Boop-bot"!

@mhrackin: Will this be the first step toward creating your very own "flirtabot"?

Well, with regard to the blinking eyelids -- I am planning on giving them cartoon-like eyelashes :-)
