ONE OF MY OLD ROBOT!

this is one of my oldest robot named Naltz created on May 3, 2009, i have posted it on my old wikia page, it's now gone because i used the parts for my other robots. but i have created many of this things because it's mechanism is very simple, and BTW, most of his hardware are from cereal boxes that had been drawn for it's face and for the linkages.

so what does he do? well, he can talk, his mouth moves like a marionette or a ventriloquist dummy,and he has sounds from an old toy.

here are some pictures:

Biped Howto: Moving servos

+++ UPDATE (12-march-2014): Rename title as "Biped Howto".

Hi, I will try to explain, in a very simplistic manner, the way in which servo motors can be controlled.

Servo motors are controlled by a PWM signal, in which the active part of the signal (known as duty cycle) define the amount of degrees the servo will rotate.
