With an animatronic robot head, DJ created a new feature for EZ-Builder. This robot was used as a platform for the Relative servo Tracking Camera Control option.

Description:
Animatronic companies are being outdated by CGI in Hollywood. Do not fear! There are plenty of uses for their technology in robotics. I came across this robot head, made by Robots Squared.
The head has servos to control the eyes (vertical and horizontal) and eyelids. I connected these to the EZ-B and whipped up a little project. Of course, the project source can be found under
File->Examples in EZ-Builder. I used this as a platform to implement a new feature for camera tracking. 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.
