Is it live, or is it Memorex!?
The physical LEGO portion of my head sculpture is complete. The inner head is hollow, so that I can house electronic components. I wanted to have a special mechanism to make the top of the head pop off like a jack-in-the-box (with the usage of servos), but I’ll probably just simplify it to make the eyes light up. At the time of this posting, I’m currently working on a simple Arduino circuit to have the eyes illuminate and blink at various rates, such as the right eye lighting up while the left eye stays off and whatnot.
I’m personally very proud of this model and how well it turned out, not to mention that I constructed this whole creation rather rapidly. I broke ground for this in late March 2016, and finished about half of it by the end of a weekend. Shortly thereafter during the end of March and the beginning of April, I made the final touches. As of April 2016, this is my currently-most liked photo of all time on Instagram, which exceeds 500 likes, and my most favorited Flickr image.
