Rotating and Lifting Head Pt2 - 2007/08/24 17:05 This thread discusses the Content article: Rotating and Lifting Head Pt2

Absolutely stunning James....
1. How soon could we see a video !
2. How soon will you open up a business and shop and sell these to those of us (me), not competent to do this level of engineering ? ( Note to WBR - a few of us (me) out here are in desperate need for a 914 Store to sell mods like this one. )
#3. Where does the Princess Leia 3D holograph projector fit ? ( oh yeah)

Re:Rotating and Lifting Head Pt2 - 2007/08/24 17:37 The videos will come with part 3. It basically works now under test but there are lots of wires hanging out the back connected to my laptop, so once I've got it all looking nice and completely stand-alone I'll put something up on YouTube.

In terms of reproducing it, although the parts were partially laser cut I had to do a lot of trimming and tweaking to make it fit in there and run smoothly. I guess it would be possible to draw/redesign and reproduce the parts with a CAD/CAM system, though but it would be a fairly long development cycle to make a resellable product or a kit of parts that was good enough to distribute.

Not sure if a projector would fit in there as most of the spare space is around the edges - although the next mechanical project I do will probably be a light weight arm and gripper that fits under there on the Bot's right hand side (opposite the eye) and folds out sidways when the head is up. I have to design a clever folding / extending mechanism for this so it can reach the ground but I have several ideas... watch this space!
