Servo-controlled RF stalk WIP
« on: Nov 24, 2015, 12:09 AM »
I started working on a servo kit for the helmet rangefinder.

The base with stalk - 3D-printed protoype. This one is for the Target Rubies helmet, but files for other bucket types will be made available for print.


Here's a video of the servo in action:

With our costume technology platform(currently in development), CosTek, we'll be able to connect the micro-controller for the servo in your helmet to various methods of control to set the position:
  • another micro-controller in your gauntlet or anywhere else, wirelessly
  • a button on your helmet
  • or control it with our mobile app

We're looking at releasing the kit at the beginning of the year as an add-on/community contribution to our costume technology platform, CosTek http://getcostek.com/.

I would love to get your feedback on the control methods and other types of connected electronics you would like to see in your costume.
