I finished the eyelids a few weeks ago and they just do not look quite the way I want them to look. So after being cheesed off at the lack of success with Bender’s eyes lids I have knocked him back to a priority #2.
However work on my new project is coming strong, the legs and torso are all together and there will be lots of hand sanding in my future.
I have made plans to what he will do….
The electronics will be taken care of easily. I will use some of the PCBs I created for the scale Dalek I made.
The PCBs were designed to have several functions
one was to control a couple of servo motors and interface with the SRF05. others were just more generic input outputs. More information about these can be found on my website (look to the right for a link to geek white north website) I will be adding in some other generic lighting effects.
Possibly sound and possibly a voice recognition feature. These two have yet to be worked out and they would be more for my own personal fun than anything else.
Bender will certainly continue but I hate spinning my wheels so much. So it will not be continued for a while.
If you are interested in other versions of Bender …check the links to the right.
