Halloween Animatronics: Build A Possessed Doll

We’ve all seen them: horror movies starring a creepy doll that tries to kill everyone in the house, usually because it’s been possessed by a vengeful ghost or a demon. It always starts small, though: little movements, like the head turning, that let you know that something’s not quite right about little Samantha’s favorite toy. Then, by the end of the movie, the doll is in fully-possessed-mode, flying through the air and slaughtering everyone. Meet Amanda. Amanda is a possessed doll that, with the help of a smattering of code, randomly turns her head left, right, and sometimes all the way around. It’s not much, but it’s enough to make your favorite horror fan run screaming from the room. Generously illustrated, this volume of Halloween Animatronics takes you step-by-step through the process of creating her, from cutting open her head to swap out her eyes, to mounting the servo that turns her head, to the few lines of code to make the servo work its magic. If you already have an Arduino, she can be built for under $40 in parts, and an Arduino can be gotten very cheaply if you need one. For those wanting to create spooky Halloween props and get introduced to animatronics, the Arduino, and robotics in general, this book is a must-have!

An animatronic doll? How cool is that? It was really interesting to read how he made it, but unfortunately for me, I do not have the mechanical skills to make my own. Still, I would love to read more from this author about animatronic things.

If you know what a servo is and how to use it, don't buy this book. It is a pamphlet tell you how to attach a servo to a doll head an make it move.

thought there would be more. my bad for not spending more time reading before I bought. good info for a specific project.

Kind of crude but it gets the job done. I have used it as a springboard to making more ambitious projects. It was a good deal for the money.

I didn't have time to build a doll this year but think i will have no trouble next year. Everything laid out for you. pretty good book.

This is well put together, I would suggest buying a arduino first or reading book is merely a reference to a single animatronic prop.

Great for new people. It explained things in a clear way. Though I still need to look up a few things... lol

small but interesting book. with step by step intructions on changing doll into demon infested decoration
