Maker Faire Bay Area 2017 – Animatronics

Jack Turner, and his dad David, refurbished ShowBiz Pizza Place (aka Chuck E. Cheese) animatronics to provide an Arduino/MIDI/relay controlled show. Jack did a great job to get the 19 degree of freedom Mitzi Mozzarella and 20 degree of freedom Billy Bob Brockali, both from Rock-afire Explosion, up and running.
