$600.00 Robot Head

How to Build a Computerized Android Robot Head for $600.00

Figure3 I'm almost positive I've seen this before, but I don't remember posting it. Either way, it's a page that's making the rounds on developing a robotic head for $600. Now, considering Sony's ASIMO cost in the hundreds of millions, this is a relative bargain. But it's pretty simplified, so no mouth movement, limited head movement, and such. But, considering you get eye, eyelid, and gross head movement (the head rotates on a fixed base), it's very cool. Also includes software to hook up to Windows machines to the robot head, for control purposes.
