    BTW, I have these images mirrored on the bit-tech server in case the Photo Bucket hosting dies. If they go down, email me and I'll switch 'em

    Ah, just popped into this thread, to have a quick look, check it out. Well, y'know, wow

    Absolutely astounding work. Some of the first pics I was seeing, I was thinking looked like they'd be the sort of project an entire team at a prestigious university would work on, not something a single man could be doing on his own. Well done, keep it up dude, fantastic work.

    I'm confident this guy is right!!! Always use things you like in your job: If you like something, that's the biggest drive you can have for getting better @ it!!

    Anyway, good luck with the modding! :dremel:

    You are quite gifted, and with such talent I am sure that all the above will change someday, and you will be a millionaire : )

    My animatronic project

    Hardware
    The Mini SSC II is a fully assembled module that includes a convenient phone-style jack for serial hookup, Futaba-J servo output headers, a sync LED to indicate when valid data is received, and switchable servo range/resolution (90° range with 0.36° resolution, or up to 180° motion and 0.72° resolution).
    [​IMG]

    software
    Visual Show Automation (VSA) is the best visual solution for choreographing complex lighting, animatronic, and audio shows. VSA breaks away from traditional solutions and realizes that complex animatronics, robotics, and lighting systems demand a sophisticated solution.

    Thanks again Guys
