Hey
Here is the head movement.
I used a converted arduino uno to an ezb controller (There is an awesome tutorial on here for this) and mg90s all metal gear servos.

The robot has a full PC inserted into the chest so all is controlled directly from the robot.

I will use a window mirror screen program so the robot does not have to be connected to a monitor for it to be coded.

Also I can run the PC on batteries 2 lipo battries here is a really cool thread if you guys want to do the same with your projects

I am Still waiting to buy a projector to project the face animation. Curently it is just funds.
I love the stewart platform design.

I used the servo Auto Position control in the Synthiam software and this movement is just head turn left right and prone with a more natural angle.
I can also do a head look up and down and fine movements as well.
Also I have the 3d printing slicer installed on the PC in the chest so in a way the robot is kinda printing its own parts.
Pretty cool

Any way here is the project and video and a photo (for some reason this thread imports it and flips the photo sideways).

And the link to the project so far everything is open source and free to download
