Leap Motion Controlled Interactive Starbot Puppet

I wanted to see if I could get good results from a Leap Motion Controller using Processing, an Arduino and a Starbot. I think this came out pretty good, and has good hand to starbot motion. People who tried it became a puppeteer in very little time, and it was lots of fun. Watch for a step-by-step tutorial soon. ~Pat

Teaching Animatronic Workshops at Otronicon at The Orlando Science Center

Otronicon_01smNothing captures our curiosity more than the future, and nothing captures the future better than Otronicon. Teaching “Intro To Animatronics” Workshops for this four day event was fun for all. It was exciting to see the students realize they could make things they thought were impossible, or didn’t know where to start. We covered the skills for creating an animatronic in a fun and whimsical manner. The students learned the entire process including Creativity, Mechanics, Servos, Micro-Controllers, Leds, Input Devices, Animation, and Papercraft. Thank you to all that attended, and I look forward to seeing you next year. ~Pat
