View Full Version : [Question(s)] Money You Could Be Saving With Geico

I'm gonna make a geico money robot:eek:. It will wiggle and the pupils will move either by pressing a hidden button in the back or by motion sensor. I've figured out how to do everything except make the pupils move:confused:. It need to be small enough to fit inside the back casing of a google eye, maybe with a little extra. My best idea is to mount the pupils on rotating disks that would be moved by a servo inside the heart of the money. Any Ideas:rolleyes:http://www.adrants.com/images/geico_kash_roofers.jpg

Welcome to the forum! Cute idea!

Mounting a single micro servo with an eccentric going between the two eyes would be my first guess.

You might be able to use a couple small servos to press down and forward opposite the downstroke (if that makes sense) and cause the money to walk.

Or simpler - you might be able to get it to jiggle and travel pseudo-randomly by using a pager motor or two and harnessing the vibration.

Anyway - welcome again and awesome idea!
