was added. This was sized to fit the mask and attach to the
lower lip. I installed the servo above the hinge. I would
have preferred to have it below, but I didn’t have sufficient
clearance with this particular mask (Figure 16). I’m very
happy with the results of this design. It came together
quickly and only requires a little bit of woodworking with
common tools to complete (Figure 17). Once some foam
was added to provide additional support, the mask was
attached and it was finished. I will be inserting some eyes
in it, but that’s for another day (Figure 18).
This build — along with the one for the mask — both
utilize my Frankenstein three-axis controller boards. This
board drives the jaw in sync with your supplied audio track.
It also moves the three head servos — nod, tilt and rotate —
in a random fashion (Figure 19).
Setup for the board requires you to simply download
the supplied program, open it in the free program editor
