Just a quick update: thrift store had a sale on battery backups with LCD displays.
Also head now turns with joystick control. (Cannibalized an old RC car remote) Working on getting things off the breadboard to more rugged mounts with proper sockets n stuff. Probably like the head LEDs all connect via 4-pin molex
Figure I'll attach the monitor to the bottom of the neck and the whole head/monitor unit is installed just before... test drives? Cockpit time? Hmmm...
Another quick update: spending time with car diagnosis/repair (possibly bad alternator but cleaning battery wires first) and working on editing/recording a sort of build series for youtube.
A local from the con contacted me and interested in building a foe for MARDUK. Exchanged some info and will be comparing designs n stuff.
That's amazing work you have so far. I been interested in exoskeletons/mechs for a while and follow up on the news. The chest area kinda reminds me of a Warhammer from Battletech. View attachment 271275
