My wife and I went to see Evil Dead - The Musical, and I was entranced by the moose puppet on the wall. I thought "Heck, it would be easy enough to make an animatronics moose to have at home", so I set out on this project.

 

 

Basic plan steps are

  • Acquire moose head puppet
  • Acquire robotic arm + servos
  • Begin programming pi - Basically can use most of the Google AYO voice pieces, need to add some references to pulse audio to capture the sound as he's speaking, to use to move the mouth
  • Assemble pieces
  • Laugh a lot

 

Steps completed

Moose head puppet on the way from ebay!

Robotic arm on order

Google AYO kit reformatted back to original and programming has begun!
