ATtiny servo control

 

After a brief discussion with fellow LMR member Maxhirez, about his Hedwig robot,
it seems as though there isn't much support for servos in the ATtiny family of
microcontrollers. After fighting with the 8-bit servo library I found HERE that was
supposed to make it as easy as a standard Arduino to add servos to an ATTiny project,

I found this on YouTube and thought it was a pretty neat way to make some strong, flexible, temperature resistant robot parts. All the info is in the video, but basically it is like polymorph, only silicon based. Enjoy.
