What's New

How would you like a full-sized animatronic head?  We are pleased to offer a complete fully assembled animatronic head designed and built by David Ng of Vancouver, BC, Canada.  This head includes 16 servos and 2 Mini-SSC controllers. The VSA software which operates the facial actions listed below is $80 extra. The neck also moves left and right and up and down.   

VSA Servo controller software - CD version 5.0 Hobbyist $79.95 (below)

See VSA software description here.


We recently have completed many major changes and improvements to our animatronic head product.  Specifically, these changes include replacing many parts with stainless steel parts and aluminium parts to ensure the head will be as durable as possible.  We have a demonstration unit in Vancouver BC. If you are near by, you are welcome to come over to look at it and test it out before you purchase it.  However the viewing is only done by appointment with Chris Willis either by phone or by email.
