Another mini KeepOn?

[Eustice Scrubb] has posted some videos and pictures of a robotic “eye stalk” that he’s building. It looks like the final version is using 3 servos in an arrangement like tendons through a slinky jr. The ping-pong ball on the top has a BlinkM inside it. You can see a video after the break that shows the three servo tendons in motion. The whole thing is controlled by an Arduino and one of his pictures states that it plays mp3s and has an internal pendulum. None of his pictures seem to implicitly state what it is meant to do though.

    what’s that awesome keyboard behind?

    I’m scared to know the true intentions of said device o_o

    looks like something you sit on lmao

    All I can think of is Mr. Garrison’s “IT” vehicle from South Park…

    Probably a Halloween prop, paint an eyeball on it and cover it in a rubber sleeve and it’ll look spooky.

    would be better with an arduino.

  8. Alexander says:

    Bobob, it does include an arduino. Look at the second video!

    Whether or not that was meant to be comical, I laughed.

    *sigh*… another day another arduino post.

  12. bobob says:

    holy shit,you’re kidding me….

    an ARDUINO POWERED DILDO….i know you guys at hack a day have to get a certain number of arduino posts in every month,but isn’t this taking it a little far????

  13. But then why is there a blinkm at the tip?

    @bobob and others
    Fuck you and GTFO. Ever think that maybe lots of people use arduinos because they’re a good hacking platform and it opens lots of doors to people who otherwise wouldn’t hack?

  15. EvilNCarnate says:


    Ever think that people make the sideways comments about the Arduino just as a jest. Might need to check your sarcasm meter, I think its malfunctioning. Or if its broken just build one, I heard you can make a great one with an Arduino.

    Well played sir. You receive 1 internet cookie for your deed. :-)

  17. Jonas says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this looks like an elaborate (in all it’s glory) yet quite inadequate sextoy?… :P

  18. KitPaws says:

    It looks like it’ll be a dancing little robot thing. Hence the ability to play mp3s.

  19. bobob says:


    wow-your commenting kung-fu is strong sir. well done.


    i never meant to insinuate that the arduino is not a great hacking platform,obviously if it can be used to create a robotic dildo,the possibilities are endless. as a matter of act,sometimes i like to rub an arduino on my genitals just for the pure pleasure it gives me. i’m even thinking of starting an arduino porn site,with pictures of arduinos in various sexually suggestive poses.

    btw,how’s that new meter coming along?

    @ EvilNCarnate You sir made Me laugh really hard. Now that’s netiquette.

    Looks cool, maybe put a cam in there also? Facial recog.
