The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Weird Yano Doll Head Hack

Craft & Design


Chuck told me that he has a “Yano” doll coming to him in the mail to hack up and pointed me to this robotic hack of the doll. I postulate that it is the child of yoda and a gremlin.

The main focus of this project had to do with creating an easy method for controlling the head from a computer. We did not want to spend time designing and building our own robot. Instead, we decided to use the head of children’s toy Yano, designed as an interactive storyteller. This toy head suited the needs of our project well because of its particularly expressive face.
