    Awesome! Might I ask, what programs or whatnot did you use for this? I've always been eager to get into animatronics I've just never been in the know.

    Any and all help would be appreciated!

    Huh. That looked like an audio editing program on the computer, and a ventriloquist's dummy run by a hand in the back. Am I wrong?

    thanks.

    basically, RC servos and servo software. all are available at hobby stores or online...just google and they'll come up. some are free. the soundtrack was edited with editing software. the whole show is controlled from a computer and fed into a stereo system. it's one of those build as you go projects. i used to sell a kit online for the head mechanicism. i'm thinking of revamping it and reselling it later this year before Halloween. of course, the Ghost Host narration would NOT be included as it is copyrighted. it is, however, available on file-sharing websites. everything else you see is part of the kit i used to sell.

    lol... if the animatronic's movements and sountrack synchronization really fooled you, i'll take it as a compliment to the accuracy of the servo's programming.

    Well, if I was wrong I certainly apologize. What's the interface between the audio program and the servo control?
