Actually, this was going to be a Ghost of the Ghoul Goes West post, but as I was getting video of the progress on this animatronic hand (over which I'd been sweating and slaving ALL FREAKING DAY), something horrible happened.
It's time to explain something about electronic things.
See, electronic things operate on magic smoke. There is magic smoke running through all those wires like water in your plumbing. Magic smoke is what moves and pushes and converts and pulls and makes things work.
And if you somehow let the magic smoke out --
-- it won't work anymore.
And so, somehow, even though I checked everything many times, I somehow released the magic smoke from one of my digital servos.
... no finger motion, and very little wrist motion.
I mean, it's not like I was finished with the project, but after all the work I did all day, it's frustrating.
It would've been a good post too.
Oh well. Back to the ol' drawing board.
