Real-time, wireless head motion capture for 3-axis skull

I just completed my "mimic" project that uses a sensor and Raspberry Pi mounted on a ball cap that uses WiFi to send the operator's head orientation to another Pi that controls a 3-Axis skull. I'm pretty happy with the results! (A shoutout to Greg G on Haunt Forum for the ball cap mount idea)

I've got a detailed description of the project posted on my blog, and the code is all open source and available on GitHub. You can view a demonstration on YouTube:

Oh man, this is so awesome! I'm sorry, you are now going to be bombarded with questions!

1) The skulls eyes seem to be moving independently of the motions of the head, is that a separate control function?
2). The three axis skull, did you build it and have you done a tutorial on how to do it?
3) The skull itself is brilliant, may I ask where you picked it up?
4) You planning on adding mouth movement?

I like the delayed and slightly jittered movement on the skull, I think it adds to the effect of it and it's function.
I imagine a troop of these all synced up to a single input unit and having the first all skeleton acapella/dance troupe!

Thanks for sharing :)
