    Hello InMoovers,

    Last weekend a good friend and me where asked to come to the “Mini Maker Faire” in the Netherlands.
    http://www.eindhovenmakerfaire.nl/?lang=en
    We where there “as builders” to talk with people how like to build something like InMoov.
    At our stand, we shared some more projects from https://www.wevolver.com/home/

    During this weekend it was a good moment to test my finger “servo-safer” setup.
    So I’ve programmed a simple ServoSlow sketch for the Arduino.
    The finger was running about 8 ours non stop without any problems.
    And the second day it was running for 7 ours non stop…

    Here a video:

    Because of these good test results, I’ve ordered some smaller servo’s !
    If these new and smaller servo’s are strong enough, it saved a lot of weight.
    I’ve ordered these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=47109
    During this weekend, the finger was moving with a Towerpro MG996R servo (55 gr. each!)
    5 new small servo’s are together 65 gr. (5×13 gr.) and 5 MG996R are 275 gr. together !
    OK, the smaller servo’s can handle maximum 2,5Kg, so I hope this is enough 🙂
    I think it’s enough, and I hope it is…

    Later this week ,I hope to show and share some results.

    Regards,
    Marten
