So... I finally got a helmet that I'm moderately happy with it and started putting electronics inside. This is just an Arduino with a servo (MG90S) and a magnetic sensor (KY-003). With a magnet in the tip of your finger you activate the sensor and alternate the positions of the servo. It's very close to what we see on mandalorian S2.

This feature will be added to my biggest WiP: The MandoSuite (better name pending). A central unit to control all the electronics inside my helmet.
In addition to the control via the Android app I've shown before, now I'm adding communication with an Arduino in the glove to control the servo and other things. That would be great for Fett style gauntlets or other custom builds without having to use a smartphone.

I know this is pretty old, but I had to ask; is your android app available anywhere? I'd love to use the motion graphics screens in the future.

Hi Zam. The graphics in the Android app are placeholders, they're actually videos I downloaded from Youtube.
This was one:

The other I can't find it right now but I think it was Aliens inspired.

The project isn't finished yet as for the last months I've been focused on my Beskar, both armor and a big mythosaur skull.
