Still a bit to go on the remixed head I'm working on, but here is some of the footage from testing today and yesterday.
Please forgive the messy face plates, was one of the first PETG prints I attempted and didn't have anything dialed in yet. The slots on the mask are also likely to be scrapped. They were for an easy version 4 motor brow mech, but I'm going to attempt to make a magnet held version at this point so we don't need the extra dust holes cut in. :D
Currently testing in Nixiecore!? :) Current nixie version but using Ray Edgley's FRED build set up. (includes a swinggui.).
First Calibration test - Jawhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4bgYlZlou8
First Calibration test - Left Eyehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-VIwc1o0Nk
First Calibration test - Both eyes (Certainly will take a bit more calibrating to get them running nicely together, but will try and bang that out in the next few days.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0Gsn8F3x1A
Eyes have camera slots for raspi spycams (likely going to run them as a webcam myself, but seems many others are trying out the raspi MRL set up recently so that works for them also), slotted in 7 led neopixels and they work as independent 4 servo eye mechs so that they are easier for people to adapt to other projects. Easier to place... not to calibrate. XD
Running off an arduino nano connected to a PCA9685 at the moment. Maybe nervoboards 3.0 will have the slots for that kinda thing eventually Gael!? :D :D
Lets see....the layout plan so far is as such.
8 servos - Eyes
3 servos (2pin) - Jaw (2 axis.... may try and squeeze in a 3rd eventually)
1 servo - Rot Neck
4 servos - Eyebrows (Still need to work the mech out on the no groove version)
One empty slot on the PCA9695 so hey perhaps that jaw will be a thing eventually. :)
Still trying to keep the semi traditional Inmoov look so skipping the lips and cheeks etc for now so it doesn't require a silicone mask or anything like that to not look too freaky. Also Ray wanted his Raspi in the head so I don't think I have room for the servobox for all that stuff. Maybe a 2nd head project in the future for masked versions. *don't wait for it, may be awhile* XD
The files will be available on thingiverse to play with once I finish up the brows and adjust some extra support on the headplate. Also need to bang out a bit more of the coding so it is more worky for people and less change of breaking things.
