Skin, Pores, & Servos

I apologize for not posting in so long; I had a very dramatic incident with my laptop and Apple and stuff

Skin Simulation:

Slits connected on the left and right side with fishing line to two servo motors to open and close as if they were sweat glands.

Materials used: muslin, embroidery hoop, fishing line, liquid latex, Arduino Uno, two servo motors

The muslin has approximately 5-7 coats of latex.  This allows it to retain its structure and shape when stretched in the embroidery hoop.

confusing underside contruction

Today’s goal is to: 1) fix my Arduino code; 2) switch out the existing servos to one that draws less current/hook a 9V to successfully power both servos
