Back by popular demand, independent animatronics consultant and co-creator of Inkha (the robotic receptionist at Kings' College London) Matthew Walker will be leading this fantastic animatronic masterclass.
Participants will build an animatronic copy of their own eye! The sessions will begin by demonstrating how to make a mould of your eye and how to use this to cast a latex copy of your eyelid. The next step will be to construct a mechanism to mount a doll's eyeball so that it can move from side to side, then stick the eyelids over them. You will even be able to take the eye home!
In the afternoon you will be able to join th follow on maseterclass, Arduino Animatronic Eye Masterclass, where you will attach your eye to servo motors and an Arduino board to make the eye move. More info and booking info here: click here
