Big heads are, in fact, big.

These heads are big! It’s a little hard to tell, but Dave is inside a puppet head. We’re looking in through an unpopulated eye socket. The mesh on his head is made with that Protoplast stuff from a few posts ago. You can see some of the carbon fiber rods on which the eyelids swivel.

  1. Hi raphael, your work is very interesting and I share your proffesional interest in animatronics and puppetry. However, i’m a puppeteer frst and electrical animagician second. I too had supplemental “work” doing r and d with the blue man group for many, many years. I’m very new too arduino though. How can i get involved? Perhaps i can help on the puppetry and rigging end. I live in the east village and hope to hear from you and your robot soon…;-)
    best.
