I saw those too and they look like a great product for a great price. That lighting kit makes them look awesome!

For the do it youreselfers on here, you might want to have them check out the YouTube videos by willetfx. The movement is very realistic and they even show how to actually make the eerily realistic eyeballs in the earlier videos.

They use u-joints from a radio controlled truck (Traxxas driveshaft) or I saw some have used the plastic u-joints that come in Lego kits. Either can be bought on eBay.

I haven't got a chance to make any of these yet, but really want to. I'm impatiently waiting for my EZ-B V3 to arrive. Might make a good first project for me to get used to the board and software. :-)

Here's an example of one of the videos showing one eye and the movement you can achieve:




Here's their 2 eye setup (2 servos):




Here's one with eyelids (4 servos):





Thanks,

Those videos are AWESOME! I have some great ideas for a robot when I get back home. But it won't be for a few more weeks:( Hopefully no one takes my idea first! haha

HI DJ,

First, I want to apologize for my English, but I think it is better than your Portuguese.

Second, I want to congratulate you for your excellent robotic projects.

Third, I ask where the camera device was instalate in you project Robot head, for Camera Tracking Control?

Thanks a lot,

Best Regards.

Hi hmanso,

Il faudrait demander confirmation à DJ, mais je pense que c'est soit la caméra de l'ordi, soit une autre cam que l'on ne voit pas clairement sur la video. En tous les cas elle n'est pas incorporée dans la tete, c'est sûr.

Regarde sur cette page il en parle :
Robot head

citation : " The new Relative servo Tracking option allows a stationary camera to control the position of servos based on the objects location. In the videos below, you will see it in action."

Oui, c'est vrai, mais .......... Attendons ce que le DJ va nous dire à ce sujet, je suis curieux, et d'ailleurs, j'ai déjà acheté une pour monter, e pour faire expériences.

Merci.
