    Who do you use for your servos? they look like Hitec or maybe Airtronics? Hitec is my guess.

    Dude, Hitec? It might be because I'm an RC guy, but I'd use Futaba servos. and if your concerned about space, you could use micro servos(from Futaba), cause I dont think you need much torqe for an eyeball

    How are you not working for Jim Hensons Creature Shop or Stan Winston Studios?

    This is blockbuster quality work.

    @led dude hitec has good servos. And he picked what he needed. Hitec also serves lightly the robotic servo world.

    You went to the dentist? You seem like the person who would do his own work. Don't worry about your teeth anyway. If you lose em, just make some pimp alien teeth for yourself and when your 70, smile at the little kids and scare them.

    nice job anyways!

    I'm loving this project, but I have to say that it reminded me of another project. I saw a guy take apart a furby and put the inerds in the front of his case. Poor guy didn't know that the only way to make the stupid thing shut up is to tip it upside down.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to how this progresses. And one question, have you heard about that guy in California that's developed a molable polymer that behaves just like human skin? I saw some of the models that he made with it and it is freaking weird.
