Topknot's Functional Face. Videos And Photos

I had run some of this before but I never put up any video with the skin on so here it is.

Here it is without the skin.

These next two show the cable movement. This is an old cordless screwdriver with a lever added to it and a couple of limit switches.

Whoa ..this is way better then the Ronime thread ... This is fantastic. Great movement and very nice and smooth ....the rig is solid ..once those mandibles are glued down there will be no bounce ..something i havent seen in most home builds.

I put the video up there tongue in cheek. Jeff does some fantastic work. His engineering skills are --well  "topnotch"!!!!! His attention to detail and creative design blow me away.
 
PTGreek you are right I can't quite figure how to get that little bounce out of it. I will get it but it is driving me a little crazy. The reason for the 2009 photos is because I am a slow loser and I have been working on other things. You think that is bad, I sculpted that mask 15 years ago. It sat there in clay for a couple years while I went through a divorce and ran wild for a while. That's my story and I'm stickin to it.
