Need help with findind all the T&L articiles for Animatromic

Post by directcurrent1 » Tue Apr 24, 2012 12:11 am

Hello, I am searching for all the articiles in reference to Animatronics (By that I mean those animatonic type devices that you see in stores that look like some sort of person/monster/ pirate that moves his head and mouth and talks/sounds or sings a song when you press a button)
....................... Reason is ; .............................
I think there neet but I have been searching the net for a particular few charaters that I like to have as Animatronic Figures that when you press a buttom it moves his head or flap its wings or makes a scream monster sound. but I can not found one that does what I want or is to small for my taste.
... So want I want to do and sounds like fun is learn how to make one and build it and but in the voice that I would like.
//////// Now here is the needed help? I Know that T&L had sever articiles on this subject in Nuts and Bolts on how to put one together. How can I search for all the articiles on this Subject in either Nuts & Bolts or Servo./ print them out so I can build one or two to do all this.
/////// Second question is do any of you know of any websites/Books/ etc. that I can get to help me with this task. Please let me know
God Please all that respond the this call, Thank you.

Hi DC.. I sent you a response as a private message but it occurred to me that you might find a lot of good detail using this book:

http://www.amazon.com/Animatronics-Holi ... 0790612194

Edwin lives here in Austin and we're both members of The Robot Group Inc. His works have been used in movies and commercial haunts. I recommend you pick up that book to get acquainted with building all types of animatronics. Hope this helps :)

hay Yern, many many thanks , I really thank you a lot and I will, in dead get the book. I have been interested in robots, antimation for may year. I was raise around NASA in Huntsville and watch them used robots like toys to move the space station hubs around and rockets. Even made an attemp at two where I word on CNC machine the size of football fields. Only one problem a fork lift ran ove one and a SIMI ran over the other. O well Hehehe. For my next trick I want to buld a450 ft godzilla that works hehehe just kiding, but I do want one that is 14 in tall that make sounds, make his eye roll and his back blades turn white or red just before it shoot a 6 in flame out its mouth and move it head. --- Second I want a duck 12 inch tall that can open his wings, move his head eyes and mouth opens and says a few chose words ( hehe I know you know what that sounds likke but I think I will just call my fread. Then I want to move int a more serious project.
