Hi everyone. I've been lurking for a while and decided to finally take the plunge. I'm wanting to apply motion to a sphere and make it move very similar to an owl's head. So 3 motions involved. Rotation, say 180º max, Tilt backwards and forwards say 45º and Tilt sideways to left and right again 45º max. It would need to be both a sequential movement and a combined movement and totally random interspersed with various periods of inactivity, so think owl.
What I have from my junk drawer is a Board of Education Rev B, 2 Basic Stamps BS2e Rev D, some servos 0.1sec/60degree 1.4 kg/cm torque. a bunch of various resistors and capacitors.
What I DON'T have is any programming skills or knowledge. I've been playing around trying to program the stamps with what I think are some possibilities but getting nowhere fast. Maybe I'm approaching this all wrong and need something a bit more sophisticated than the Stamp.
So any help would be really appreciated and maybe save me a lot of time going in the wrong direction.
