Animatronics (632 words)
Animatronics, as opposed to Robotics, only deals with creating (normally time-based) repetitive actions with no or little change in the routine upon external events.
The quickest way of achieving results is to use third party animatronics hardware and software that is readily available for use with low power servos.
A graphical user interface displays the audio track's waveform and let the user set the position each servo is to reach at any desired time, as well as the rate (how fast) the servo is to move to the new position.
