  1. Minor Arduino Coding Help

    Halloween Props
    Hi folks, I'm trying to write Arduino code for essentially a 3-Axis skull. I followed the "Jawduino" build from ButtonBanger.com but I tweaked it to run from a PIR sensor. Now I'm trying to add extra servo sequences (just random motions), but I'm having an issue running the servos at the same...
  2. Electronic/Software: Tin Man Zombie Modification

    Halloween Props
    My theme for Halloween this year is Zombies of OZ. This is the Tin Man's head. I am using the Banshee controller from haunthackers.com with a Monster Guts 3-Axis Skull hardware. The head is made from EVA foam and will be further shaped, sealed and painted.
  3. 2 3-axis skulls and controllers

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Well I am moving and having to part with some of my decor. Sadly, I have 2 3-axis skulls that I started on, but never got beyond the build phase. I wont have the time or energy or space for these for at least the next few years, so instead of them sitting on a shelf, collecting dust, I'd like...
  4. 3-Axis Lindberg Talking Skulls For Sale - Complete. Closing business...

    For Sale By Merchants
    Hello - I am shutting down my business and moving. I have three 3-axis skull setups and want to get rid of 2 of them. These were built by me and include the controller system, which is remote-controlled... no computer needed. They tell pirate jokes when triggered. Here is a link to the 2...
  5. Custom 3-Axis Movement Mechanism

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I'm selling my custom 3-axis movement mechanism: The mechanism is 4" at its widest point, and about 7" tall including the pan mechanism. Of course, that's the measurements when it's upright -- you can see from the video that you'll need some additional clearance around it as it moves. It...

  7. Mechanical: 3-Axis Skull Build

    Halloween Props
    Hey, everyone. I thought I'd share a project I've been working on for the past few months. For years (literally) I've wanted to build a 3-axis skull, and this last Halloween season I finally started to work on the project. Here you can see my third attempt in motion on my workbench: As you...
  8. Electronic/Software: Prop Controller Question

    Halloween Props
    For those controller experts out there I have a 3-axis skull being driven by a lynxmotion SSC-32 and a routine ive programmed in VSA. Id like to turn this into a stamd alone prop so im looking for a controller i can load my VSA routine (with audio) into and ideally it could drive my SSC-32...
  9. Mechanical: 3 Axis Skull - tapping question

    Halloween Props
    So, I FINALLY found a place to buy cheap 1/4" acrylic (which I don't know the difference between it and lexan, but I'm assuming they're relatively similar) for the plate for my 3 axis skull! My question is about tapping for the screws. Is it completely necessary to tap for the screws that will...
  10. Electronic/Software: 3-axis witch progress

    Halloween Props
    Here's my 3-axis setup loosely based on HalloweenBob's work. This is my second configuration. I cut the Lexan with a Dremel and the router attachment, then smoothed the edges using sanding bits on the Dremel. I plan to add a jaw servo and possibly 2-axis eyes. Ignore the audio, that's just...

  12. Prop Showcase: Pirates of Hollin Hall 2008 - Pictures!!!

    Halloween Props
    We closed the street this year for the first time and it was a huge success. We had over 250 TOTs make it to the door, and likely over 1000 visitors. Our two new animated props (a pneumatic skeleton popup, and a 3-axis skull) were a big hit. I looped my VSA routine with a .bat file since I...
